GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Greenfield Public Library is hosting the “Hunger Action Month Traveling Show” through Friday.
Six posters in the library will feature information and issues about hunger in the community as part of National Hunger Action Month. The information was provided by members of the Franklin County Hunger Task Force. This program will be at the Greenfield Public Library and is open and free to the public.
There are six posters on the library grounds highlighting information about hunger in the community and QR codes with links to the program. Each poster features ways to help end hunger, and for the library this means an important time where education can result in a positive outcome.
Pamela McBride, an Information Services Assistant for the Greenfield Public Library told 22News, “What we’ve done is we have highlighted six different areas to help educate and inform and show people how easy it is to help solve some of the problems of hunger here in Franklin County.”
The month of September has been designated “Hunger Action Month” to engage the public in action which includes volunteer shifts, social media shares, and donations to help end hunger.
