Feeding America, the nation's largest network of food banks, has spent September promoting awareness of Hunger Action Month while simultaneously addressing the acute need for food and water in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Locally, the Harry Chapin Food Bank is raising awareness and mobilize volunteers to contribute to the fight against hunger in Southwest Florida, a struggle driving calls for donations, food drives, and emergency distributions to help those left hungry by the storm.
