Efforts Center on Hunger Action Month in September

Sep 16, 20209/16/2020

Fighting Hunger

September is Hunger Action Month™, and it’s a cause WoodmenLife members across the country actively support. Supporting Hunger Action Month is an extension of our efforts to fight hunger throughout the year.

Our National Community Focus

WoodmenLife members participate in thousands of service projects focused on family, community and country each year. In 2015, these members embraced a National Community Focus – one cause that each of our members can contribute to. That cause is fighting hunger. It’s a problem in every town in America, including the communities where our members work and live. Over the past five years, these efforts have helped raise more than $2.8 million to fight hunger.

How WoodmenLife Fights Hunger

While WoodmenLife members across the country are united in fighting hunger, they are also empowered to choose what will benefit their local communities most. This includes:

  • Holding community food drives
  • Raising money for local food banks
  • Serving meals at community kitchens
  • Participating in food backpack stuffing events
  • Holding cookout fundraisers

In the face of COVID-19, these efforts have changed somewhat to accommodate social distancing. However, the need is stronger than ever. In fact, Feeding America estimates that about 42 million people — one in eight individuals in America — could experience food insecurity in 2021 due to the ongoing economic fallout from COVID-19. 

The strength of the WoodmenLife family has been unwavering in these hard times. Our members, associates and community supporters banded together to raise more than $1 million in less than a month during this COVID-19 pandemic. WoodmenLife was recently named a Leadership Partner with Feeding America® as a result of these efforts.
