For most people, September ushers in the new school year, the start of football season, and the beginning of fall. But here at Shipt, September means something a little different – the start of Feeding America’s Hunger Action Month™.
The Feeding America® network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization and supports over 46 million Americans in need of food and groceries.
Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. From your child’s classmate to a nextdoor neighbor, food insecurity often goes unseen and impacts communities across the country. And this month, we encourage you to take action to make sure everyone has enough to eat.
Starting September 1st, the Hunger Action Month featured category will be available in the Shipt app. For every four items purchased in the featured category, Shipt will donate the equivalent of 10 meals* (guaranteeing a minimum of $30,000) to Feeding America.
Thanks to your support, last year Shipt donated $25,000 to Feeding America food banks, and we’re excited to donate even more this year. So be sure to shop the featured Hunger Action Month category this upcoming month to help feed families in need.
Although we’re focused on supporting Hunger Action Month this September, this is an issue Shipt focuses on year round. Join us in taking a stand in the fight to end hunger today.
