Hunger Action Month
September is Hunger Action Month
What is it?
Hunger Action Month (September) is a nationwide campaign designed to create awareness and to take action on the issue of hunger.
Hunger Action Day® (September 10, 2020) is a day where efforts across the country are focused for greater impact.
The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) and the Norwood Food Pantry are working together to raise awareness about hunger and inspire our neighbors to get involved in September and throughout the year.
How can you participate?
Every Action Counts!
Donate. Volunteer. Share. Advocate.
You can make a difference every day by taking actions like volunteering, donating food or even sharing information on social media- click here to follow us on Facebook. Together, we can end hunger one meal at a time.

Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Drive
For the last 27 years, the National Association of Letter Carriers has been proud to hold the Stamp Out Hunger food drive, the nation’s largest one day food drive, on the second Saturday in May. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they weren’t able to safely collect and distribute food in May this year.
In the meantime, the need for food assistance is more urgent than ever and we want to give everyone the opportunity to continue to help meet that need.
Instead of donations, the Letter Carriers drive has transitioned to online monetary donations.
