    Armstrong Battles Hunger for Second Annual Avenge Hunger Month
     
    Rising Sun, MD– August 29, 2019– Armstrong has kicked off the second annual Avenge Hunger Month food drive to provide food and other resources to community food pantries. As part of their ongoing Breaking Bread initiative, donations can be dropped off at local Armstrong stores throughout the month of September. The timing for Avenge Hunger Month is deliberate; September is National Hunger Action Month and the need for food is higher during the last quarter of the year.
     
    The inaugural Avenge Hunger Month, in September 2018, provided nearly 50,000 pounds of food to almost 200 community feeding programs across the Armstrong footprint. Two of the programs that received support last year were Ray of Hope Mission Center in Port Deposit, MD and the Cecil College Student Food Pantry.  
     
    Armstrong’s goal for the 2019 Avenge Hunger Month is to collect 60,000 pounds of food. In addition to collecting food, Armstrong employees will also volunteer at local food pantries to help with the mission to feed the hungry. Studies show that hunger exists in every county in America and one in five children are at risk of hunger.
     
    Randy Nungester, local Armstrong General Manager, shared that “Armstrong is proud to support the local food pantries and I’m proud of our employees who support these efforts and make a difference in our community.”
     
    Your local Armstrong Store is located at 122 South Queen Street, Rising Sun, MD. Food donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. The Avenge Hunger food drive ends October 4, 2019.
