Why Did the Nashville Skyline Go Orange?

The Nashville skyline Goes Orange in celebration of Hunger Action Day.

If you caught a glimpse of the skyline last night, September 13, you may have noticed it was more orange than usual—a lot more orange.

Nashville landmarks from Korean Veterans Bridge to the Parthenon were illuminated in orange light for Hunger Action Day!

Parthenon Goes Orange WHY ORANGE?

Orange is the symbolic color of hunger relief. Often times, hunger is a hidden issue, but it’s hard to miss the color orange.

Every September on Hunger Action Day, we turn Nashville orange to bring attention to hunger issues facing our community.

Nearly 400,000 individuals struggle with hunger in Middle and West Tennessee. 120,000 are children.

28% of individuals in food insecure households in our area have incomes that are too high to qualify them for federal food assistance but are too low for them to afford nutritious food on a regular basis.

Children who grow up hungry have more difficulty in school and are more likely to have health complications when they’re adults.

We Go Orange, because if we want to solve these hunger issues, we need to work together.


Hotel Indigo Goes OrangeWe’re celebrating Hunger Action Month all September long, so when you see orange this month, it’s your cue to join us in the fight against hunger!

There are so many ways to take action. You can volunteer, participate in the Paper Plate Project, give to a food drive, and so much more.

Get more inspiration here, and be sure to share how you’re taking action by using #HungerActionTN and tagging @2harvestmidtn.
