Hunger Action Month
GO ORANGE FOR HUNGER
One in six people on the Treasure Coast and Okeechobee face hunger. This September, we ask that you Go Orange for Hunger to raise awareness of this critical issue. As individuals, charities, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting more food to people in need.
WHY GO ORANGE FOR HUNGER ACTION MONTH?
To celebrate Go Orange Day on September 1st and bring awareness of the issue of hunger in our community throughout September, buildings, landmarks and people across the country will go orange.
Hunger Action Month is our opportunity to be a part of a month-long movement that has a real and lasting impact on the mission to end hunger in America.
In 2016 more buildings, landmarks and people than ever before turned their lights orange, wore orange or went orange on social media in commemoration of Hunger Action Month.
However you choose to participate, thank you for your commitment to ending hunger in our community! Please remember to share, post and tweet how you Go Orange for Hunger this September using #HungerActionMonth.
Donate. Volunteer. Advocate. Educate.
Together, we can solve hunger.
YOU HAVE A ROLE TO PLAY
Individuals and families, buildings, landmarks, businesses, schools, universities and restaurants can all Go Orange for Hunger! Consider these great ideas:
Wear orange clothing on September 1st and ask co-workers, friends and families to join you. Take a group photo and tweet it to @FeedingAmerica and @TCFoodBank using #HungerActionMonth.
Light your home orange for the month by purchasing orange light bulbs and replacing your outdoor or indoor lighting with them.
Ask the manager of your office building, house of worship and community landmark if they can light up the building in orange for the month, a week or just one day.
Cover lighting fixture with orange lighting filters, gels or create a visual display using the Hunger Action Month Logo.
Tweet about #HungerActionMonth and include the color orange or the Hunger Action Month logo in your social media profile photos during September.
