Hunger Action Month



September is Hunger Action Month! Every September, Second Harvest Food Bank and Food Banks across the nation participate in Hunger Action Month. During this time we ask our communities to lend their voice and spread the word about hunger.

Will you lend us your voice this September for Hunger Action Month?

30 Ways in 30 Days
Use our online “30 ways in 30 days” calendar to find activities that can be done each day in September to help fight hunger here in Central Florida. Some actions are small like sharing a statistic about hunger in Central Florida via Facebook while some are larger like attending one of the special events that month.

Let’s work together to create hunger awareness through Hunger Action Month this September!

Hunger Action Month Highlights!

  • GO Orange on Thursday, September 4!  The Amway Center, Fountain at Lake Eola, and Solaire at the Plaza will all be lit orange on September 4. Orange County Public Schools will also be wearing orange to support Hunger Action Day.  You too can raise awareness of hunger! Wear the color orange on September 4.
