|All Faiths Food Bank is pleased to recognize the outstanding efforts of Booker High School in support of Hunger Action Month. The school’s Student Government Association organized the school-wide event to raise awareness about hunger issues in our community.
Michelle Anderson led the effort as Student Government Association Advisor, and enlisted the help of photographer Lori Burton, a digital design teacher at Booker High School. All Faiths Food Bank applauds their creativity which resulted in this incredible message, while teaching students about local hunger issues.
September is Hunger Action Month and across the nation communities are uniting to make a real a lasting impact in the fight against hunger. Orange is the color of hunger, and local business leaders, artists, educators, students, and residents have been invited to fight hunger by going orange and taking action.
The community is asked to take action by making a fund or food donation, pledging a monthly monetary contribution, hosting a food and fund drive, or volunteering. “Going orange” represents unity in the fight against hunger, and a commitment to act. Social media will play a big part as Facebook profiles go orange, and pictures of orange events, art, and orange-outfitted groups are posted and shared all month long.
