Go Orange for No Kid Hungry

Over 16 million kids in America struggle with hunger.   (That’s enough kids to fill over 200,000 school buses!) But you can help and it’s as simple wearing the color orange!

Orange is not just the color of Team No Kid Hungry; it’s actually the color of hunger awareness.  On September 24th join Team No Kid Hungry, young celebrities like Amandla Stenberg, FCCLA students, nonprofit partners, and individuals like YOU in Go Orange for No Kid Hungry.

Go Orange for No Kid Hungry is a national effort to raise awareness about the 1 in 5 kids who face hunger every day.  Get you school, sports team, youth group, friends and family involved by planning to wear orange on the same day.  While rocking the color orange, help raise even more awareness by snapping a photo and sharing it with your Facebook Friends.  Don’t forget to also share your photos on the No Kid Hungry 2 Facebook page.
