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, 706,130 individuals don’t know from where they will get their next meal. More than 240,000 of those individuals are children and nearly 110,000 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 2017, 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 13th 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!
