September includes both Hunger Action Month and September 11’s National Day of Service and Remembrance. In honor of both, I want to share some ideas of hunger awareness activities for kids.

For the last few years, I’ve enjoyed participating in Moms Fighting Hunger and No Kid Hungry activities during September. I’ve been amazed at all the creative ideas I’ve seen online for helping kids get involved.
