The first Friday in September – this year, Friday, Sept. 1st – is National Food Bank Day.
According to The Trussell Trust, thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK, with individuals going hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.
So when you wake up on the first Friday in September make a commitment for National Food Bank Day to contribute to the cause that believes no one should go to bed hungry.
