Hunger Action Month calls attention to the obstacles that hunger creates for people in need and recognizes the important role of the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley and other food banks in addressing hunger and raising awareness.
Food Bank RGV Manager of Communications and Advocacy Omar I. Rodriguez stated that Hunger Action Month provides fun and educational activities and education for the citizens of the County of Hidalgo and communities in the Mid-Valley.
"Hunger Action Month is hosted at the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley, Inc. and works to educate families from the County of Hidalgo on self-sustainability by learning to grow their own food and providing a market place to sell fruits and vegetables," said Rodriguez.
The Food Bank RGV is home of the Pharrmers Market, providing healthy options for the community and educating families via its Community Garden.
The Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley, Inc. is the 4th largest food bank in the state of Texas feeding up to 64,000 individuals per week via 275 Partner Agencies.
Operating in the County of Hidalgo, it contributes to the health, well-being and quality of life of the community.
"The annual Empty Bowls Luncheon will be held at the Pharr Events Center on September 18th and all are invited," said Rodriguez.
Hidalgo County Commissioners Court encourages residents to raise awareness of the issues caused by hunger and to consider donating canned goods, time, and money to the Food Bank RGV.
