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 MonthTM 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.
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 South Florida! This year, help bring awareness to the issue of food insecurity in our community by starting a GO ORANGE Fund Drive. With a 98% efficiency rating, your fundraising dollars stretch further; for every $1 donated, we can provide 6 meals.
