DONATE NOW

A monthly credit card donation is the most cost-effective method of donating to Feeding South Florida, significantly reducing the postal mail we send to you and reducing administrative costs, which puts more of your contribution to ending hunger. Every bit does a lot. For every $10 donated to us, we can provide 62 meals.

More than 710,300 people in South Florida are food insecure – meaning, they don’t know from where they will get their next meal. This September, GO ORANGE to raise awareness about this critical issue. As individuals, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting more food to those who need it, as well as breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty.

WHAT IS HUNGER ACTION MONTH & WHY GO ORANGE?

As part of a nationwide initiative created by Feeding America®, Hunger Action Month takes place throughout September and is designed to raise awareness about the issue of hunger in America.

In South Florida, 710,370 individuals don’t know from where they will get their next meal. More than 240,000 of those individuals are children and nearly 130,000 are older adults.

Last year, throughout Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties, several buildings including, among others, The Breakers, Freedom Tower, and Bank of America all participated in Go Orange Day by turning their lights orange. Dozens of groups held food + fund drives and participated in volunteer days; and several restaurants held happy hours, dinners and created signature drinks for Feeding South Florida!

In 2016, more buildings, landmarks and people than ever before turned their lights orange, wore orange, or turned their social media pages and websites orange in support of Hunger Action Month.

This year, we celebrate Hunger Action Day, a.k.a. “GO ORANGE DAY,” on Thursday, September 14th and bring awareness to the issue of hunger in our community throughout September!

Hunger Action Month is your opportunity to participate in a month-long movement that has a real and lasting impact on the mission to end hunger in South Florida!
