Hunger Action Month
Choose to stand against hunger. Sharing, volunteering, pledging, fundraising, and donating are just a few ways to help end the impossible reality of hunger.
August is National Make-A-Will Month. For many busy Americans, this yearly reminder is just the motivation they need to finally sit down and create their last will and testament.

The Upper Valley Haven is a private nonprofit that provides support and assistance to community members struggling with poverty in Vermont and New Hampshire. We meet people where they are, address immediate needs through food and shelter, and offer longer-term solutions that foster independence and housing stability. Everyone deserves to have their basic needs met and a community is stronger when we offer a hand up to our most vulnerable neighbors.

Nothing would be possible without the support of our community and for that we are eternally grateful. At The Haven over 70% of our operating budget comes from private companies and individual donations. Using your gift carefully is how we honor our donors. We couldn’t do our important work without you, thank you!
Hunger Action Month is nearly over! Here are 4 actions you can do all year to support the Haven: 1. Volunteer! We can always use volunteers to help us in the Food Shelf or cook dinner for our Hixon guests. It`s a great way to actively help the community. 2. Advocate! We need your help advocating for statewide housing and food initiatives, such as universal school meals. 3. Share! Sharing your own stories about food or housing insecurity helps humanize the reality our neighbors are facing. 4. Donate! Donating helps us purchase the food needed to nourish the community, provide case management and support to our neighbors, and provide enrichment activities for children experiencing housing insecurity.
Don`t miss out on contributing to the $50,000 match this month and making twice the impact on the lives of those facing hunger and housing insecurity in the UV! #HungerActionMonth #fighthunger 🧡 https://uppervalleyhaven.org/donate/ham/ #linkinbio ...
Did you know it costs about $500 to feed the average number of households we see daily? That`s about 70 households a day, and that cost doesn`t account for inflation rates. The number of families we see daily is steadily increasing and has risen exponentially since last year. There were many days when we saw 100 households this summer.
This #HungerActionMonth, we ask for help to feed all the families that stop by our Food Shelf on their way home from work. Please donate to this critical cause and aid us in providing nourishment to our friends who frequent our Food Shelf. https://uppervalleyhaven.org/donate/ham/ #linkinbio ...
Today is Hunger Action Day! 🧡 In 2022, about 40 million people in the US turned to food banks and community programs for help putting food on their tables. In VT alone, 1 in 10 children faced hunger last year. Sadly, these numbers have increased over the past few years. At the Haven, with the help of our community, we are doing our best to serve those facing hunger and assist those experiencing food insecurity.
Wondering how you can help? You can help by advocating, volunteering, sharing stories, and donating to help put food on the table for our neighbors. #HungerActionMonth #HungerActionDay #fighthunger #linkinbio https://uppervalleyhaven.org/donate/ham/ ...
The Food Services Program at the Haven is our busiest and most popular. We are seeing a steady increase in the number of Food Shelf visitors each month. There are many days in the month where we see about 90 households in one day.
The numbers above represent the month of July alone. Please consider donating this #HungerActionMonth to help us welcome friends in with open arms during these tough times. https://uppervalleyhaven.org/donate/ham/ #endhunger #DoubleYourImpact #linkinbio ...
What a great time we had this month at the inaugural Miles for Mutts fundraiser!
@westlebanonfitbodybootcamp hosted a community fundraiser to support the Upper Valley Haven`s furry friends this month. 🐶 All donations are going towards the cost of veterinary fees, fleas and ticks medications, vaccinations, spaying & neutering, etc. for the pets of folks receiving Haven services. 🐾 Though the event is over, the fundraiser is still going so it`s not too late to support our furry friends!
Please donate at https://uppervalleyhaven.org/donate/miles-mutts/ to help keep our pets vaccinated and healthy! #linkinbio ...
Today marks the first day of National Hunger Action Month, an annual @feedingamerica initiative in September that brings awareness to the issue of hunger in America.
