Step Up...Because Hunger Matters!
Event Date(s): September 1, 2016

On average, one in four children in the Inland Valley struggle with hunger. One in Four! That’s far too many which is why we at Inland Valley Hope Partners have organized the Step Up…Because Hunger Matters! Campaign. The campaign and the toolkit contained below are designed to help you take action on behalf of our hungry neighbors during Hunger Action Month.

It is easy to be a hero and fight hunger right here in our own backyard. There are literally hundreds of ways to fundraise, raise awareness and advocate for the hungry. We hope the ideas in the toolkit below, especially our 40 Ways in 40 Days Calendar, inspire you to take action and even come up with innovative ways of your own to make an impact. We, at Inland Valley Hope Partners, are here to help and support you any way we can.

Plus, don’t forget to join us as we conclude our Step Up…Because Hunger Matters! Campaign at the 43rd Annual Walk for the Hungry on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at the Claremont Consortium. For the first time ever, this year’s event features a fun superhero theme!

We encourage you to make your pledge TODAY to get involved and make September and October of 2016 a time for you and your family, faith community, business, school, sports team or club to Step Up and take action to make a real impact for Inland Valley's hungry children and families. Together, we can heal our community of hunger!
