Take the "Hunger Challenge" for St. Louis' Food Outreach

A message from FoodOutreach.org, the only St. Louis area organization whose mission is to provide nutritional support and enhance the quality of life of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS or Cancer. Each September, Food Outreach invites individuals, bloggers, companies and restaurants to participate in the "Hunger Challenge".

THE CHALLENGE Try to live on $29/week for all your food, that’s the average amount a Food Outreach client would receive in SNAP benefits (food stamps).

  • Raise awareness about general food insecurity
  • Raise funds to support Food Outreach programs
  • Educate people about the specific nutrition needs facing individuals battling a life-threatening illness

HUNGER CHALLENGE TIMING The entire month of September!


Individuals -- take the challenge, spread the word, donate funds

Bloggers -- take the challenge, blog about it, spread the word, donate funds

Companies -- host a canned food drive

Restaurants -- Food Outreach has table tents highlighting Hunger Action Month, consider using them, designate a special menu item during September that would benefit Food Outreach
