One in seven people in Indiana is hungry. September is Hunger Action Month, a nationwide campaign to mobilize the public to take action against hunger. As a member of Feeding America’s nationwide network of food banks, we’re asking you to support Food Finders Food Bank and the people we serve by taking action to raise awareness about the problem of hunger in our service area.

 

 

Check out ways to get involved in the fight to end hunger!


Take Action

 

 

Go orange for hunger relief!

Why go orange? Going orange provides an opportunity for people across the country to unify and show their support of hunger relief and raise awareness of hunger and the rising need in our communities.

  • Wear the color orange on September 13, Hunger Action Day, and all month long. Share a pic of you wearing orange on social media with @foodfindersfoodbank and use the hashtags #HungerActionMonth and #HungerActionFFFB
  • Make your Facebook and Twitter profiles orange this September.
  • Turn a building, your office, cubicle or your home orange to raise awareness.

Host a Food & Fund Drive

Whether you choose to host a virtual drive or want to go the more traditional route, your drive will make a meaningful difference during Hunger Action Month.
