Proclamation - Hunger Action Month, September 2021

Event: Hunger Action Month
Date: September 2021

Whereas September of each year is recognized across Canada as Hunger Action Month by Food Banks Canada, its provincial food bank associations, and community food banks across the country; and

Whereas addressing the household food security needs of children, youth, and families today is fundamental to the future of Northumberland County; and

Whereas the need for comprehensive coordinated emergency food programs place upon our community a critical responsibility; and

Whereas Hunger Action Month is a time when we recognize the work being done at local food banks, school nutrition programs, community meal programs and local hunger relief programs; and

Now Therefore Be It Resolved That I, Warden Bob Crate, on behalf of Northumberland County Council do hereby proclaim September 2021 as Hunger Action Month in Northumberland County.”

Dated this 25th day of August, 2021
