September is Hunger Action Month. Nearly 17% of our family, friends, co-workers and neighbors here in northern Indiana do not know where they will find their next meal. One in four children in this area go to bed hungry each night. The community organizations in the area that support those who are food insecure have been stretched even farther than ever before and the need is still great.

The Fighting Irish Fighting Hunger food drive looks to ease that need. We here at Notre Dame are uniquely blessed and embrace the chance to live the University’s Catholic mission by helping to feed the hungry in our community. Funds collected during the drive will go to local area food pantries to help stock their shelves and to the local food bank to send backpacks of food home with hungry kids over the weekend.
