Paper Plate Campaign

As we noted in this post, September is Hunger Action Month! This is a national campaign, led by Feeding America, aimed at raising awareness about hunger in our nation.

As part of Hunger Action Month, Good Shepherd Food Bank is encouraging our partner agencies to participate in a paper plate campaign so we can deliver a powerful message to the public and to our elected officials in Augusta and Washington, D.C.

We hope to collect a plethora of paper plates with written stories about hunger, drawings, and whatever other sentiments our clients would like to share about this pervasive but solvable problem. We want lawmakers to know what people are experiencing in their communities and we also want them to know that together we can solve hunger.  

Follow the link below to find a step-by-step outline for organizing a paper plate campaign at your agency. We appreciate your participation as we compile what we hope will be a compelling visual representation of the issue of hunger in our communities.
