This September is Hunger Action Month when we join together with food banks across the country to raise awareness of this critical issue. With one in seven Middle Tennesseans, including 1 in 5 children, struggling with hunger each day, we need the entire community to come together to create a bigger impact.
One way we spread awareness is by Going Orange, the symbolic color of hunger relief. Governor Bill Haslam and Mayor Megan Barry proclaimed Thursday, September 8 as Hunger Action Day in the State of Tennessee, Nashville and Davidson County and to celebrate the day, we partnered with notable landmarks and buildings around town to light up orange to help shed light on this critical issue.
We are so grateful to our many partners who stand with us this September. We hope this will inspire you to spread awareness and Go Orange all throughout the month.
