#Spoontember is Hunger Action Month!

This September, Second Harvest and the rest of the Feeding America network are making the spoon the central icon for Hunger Action MonthTM.

We have launched SpoontemberTM, a social media activation to engage the public and help raise awareness of the 1 in 4 South Georgians (and  1 in 6 Americans) struggling with hunger. Spoontember supporters can share a ‘spoon selfie’ – an image of themselves balancing a spoon on their nose – along with hunger-related statistics and challenge a friend to do the same.

It’s easy to share a ‘spoon selfie’ and support Hunger Action Month:

  • Grab a spoon
  • Do your best to balance it on your nose
  • Take a picture of your ‘spoon selfie’
  • Post the image to your social media accounts to raise awareness and tag a friend to do the same. Here is some sample copy to get your started:
    • I’m taking a spoon selfie to raise awareness for the 1 in 4 in South Georgia struggling with hunger. I challenge (name) to join me! #Spoontember #HungerActionMonth @SecondHarvestSGA @FeedingAmerica
    • Join me and take a #Spoontember selfie to raise awareness for the 1 in 4 in our community facing hunger! #HungerActionMonth @FeedingAmerica @SecondHarvest
  • Use #Spoontember and #HungerActionMonth to help fuel the movement and don’t forget to tag Second Harvest and Feeding America.
