Hunger Action Month

Wearing Orange on September Six for Hunger Action Month Awareness
Kristina Epping was kind enough to email to let me know that the month of September is Hunger Action Month and that the 6th was, among many other things, Go Orange Day. Above is a recap of my day but the hunger awareness initiative is for the whole month long and Kristina let me know some new ways to get involved.

One is to find and connect to local food banks on Facebook. More on this can be found at Feeding America's own Facebook page. Another way that my sister reminded me of is how she donated food at her local library in lieu of paying fines (the life of students!) and how many libraries now except food donations year 'round.

The Feeding America site says 1 in 5 children right here in the US are currently suffering from hunger. The chances of our personally knowing or seeing someone grappling with this is incredibly high.
