Feeding America’s Hunger Action Center

The Hunger Action Center is an online community of individuals who are dedicated to making a difference in the fight against hunger in our country. Together, we advocate on behalf of 49 million hungry Americans by supporting federal, state, and local legislation that addresses the many factors that contribute to food insecurity in our nation.

Our goal is to support policies that help solve America’s growing hunger crisis, while raising public awareness about the issue of hunger in our country. Click here to learn more about the issues that affect millions of food insecure Americans every day. Our advocates are active in cities and towns across the United States, working to make a real difference in the lives of their neighbors and all Americans who are at risk of hunger.

This community is powered by Feeding America, the nation’s largest charitable hunger relief organization. Feeding America supports a network of 206 food banks in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Before September 2008, Feeding America was named America’s Second Harvest—The Nation’s Food Bank Network. The organization adopted a rebranding effort in order to help better educate and engage the public about our role in the fight against hunger. Our new brand will allow us to build the support we need to feed 1 million more people each year, to significantly increase participation in federal nutrition programs, and to inspire the public to take action.
