#AuthorsAgainstHunger — Authors Help Fight Food Insecurity

#AuthorsAgainstHunger-4

Thanksgiving is coming and thoughts inevitably go to celebrations of food and family. Unfortunately, an alarming number of families in the U.S. experience hunger and food insecurity. It’s become even more dire due to the pandemic.

Enter #AuthorsAgainstHunger.

#AuthorsAgainstHunger is designed to raise awareness and desperately needed funds. The people who need it most often don’t discuss food insecurity with family/friends. This campaign bolsters the organizations they quietly reach out to.

A huge THANK YOU to this list of authors, writers, essayists, poets, illustrators, screenwriters, journalists who are participating in #AuthorsAgainstHunger! have volunteered their time and expertise! They’re offering 15-minute consultations to anyone who donates $25 to one of the following food insecurity organizations:

  • Your local food pantry or local food bank
  • Feeding America
  • No Kid Hungry
Are you a writer who’s looking for advice on publishing, querying, writing, pitching, self-publishing, or manuscript feedback, etc??
Check out the every-growing list of authors et al., below and reach out to them on Facebook or Twitter or their websites to express your interest. Then donate directly to one of the organizations and take a screenshot of your receipt, send it to the author and schedule your consultation! Fifteen minutes later you both have supported hunger relief and spread the spirit of Thanksgiving.
Are you an author, writer, journalist, illustrator, essayist, etc. who would like to participate?
We need you! Private message me on FB, Twitter or through my website. Let’s do this!
People suffering from food insecurity are turning more and more to private orgs for assistance as  federal programs shrink. FYI: A $1 donation to Feeding America pays for 10 meals!! 
This campaign was inspired by author Jessica Keener’s brilliant #AuthorsAgainstBorderAbuse campaign last year, during which thousands of dollars were raised. Let’s do it again!
