The Food Bank of Northern Nevada hosts and participates in many events for our cause. We welcome organizations seeking a charity partner for their event.

September Is Hunger Action Month

Every year in September, members of Feeding America come together for Hunger  Action Month to raise awareness not only of the issue of food insecurity  but of the incredible impact our community can have when we take action together.  Throughout the month, we’re asking our community partners to raise their voices and take action with us on behalf of the 120,000 people who turn to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada each month for food assistance.   Head on over to the Hunger Action Month page for more details on all the ways you can join us in saying #iFightHunger throughout the month.


How do you make a classic favorite like a juicy, delicious burger even better?

Load it up with some good, old-fashioned do-gooding in every bite!  That’s just what we’re doing with the Battle Born Burger Showcase-Showdown, where every burger fights hunger right here in our community during Hunger Action Month.

Burger Showcase: September 1-25

Get ready for a tasty month!  Visit participating Burger Showcase restaurants to and order their featured Hunger Action Month burger for a yummy meal that makes a difference while making your taste buds happy.  Every burger sold during the Burger Showcase provides 6 meals for our neighbors in need.

Burger Showdown: September 30

Join us at Idlewild Park on Friday, September 30 for an evening of food trucks, fun, and hunger fighting at the inaugural Burger Showdown.  Sample the Hunger Action Month burger creations from each of our participants and help us determine who deserves the ultimate bragging rights that comes along with being declared Best Burger.
