VALDOSTA – Second Harvest of South Georgia will be holding a kickoff event for Hunger Action Month 2016 in partnership with Southeastern Credit Union on Thursday.

The food bank will briefly discuss hunger in South Georgia and give an overview of the month’s activities, and the credit union will announce the 3rd annual Fill-A-Truck for Hunger campaign and issue a challenge to the community. Representatives of the Lowndes County Commission and Valdosta City Council will present a joint proclamation on Hunger Action Month. Other event sponsors such as Wild Adventures and the Turner Center for the Arts will be on hand to discuss their role in the month long campaign to raise food, funds and awareness of the issue of hunger in our community. We will also have an on-site live remote from 11-1.
