This month, our client, Feeding South Florida, which is part of Feeding America, will be lighting up South Florida in shades of orange in recognition of national Hunger Action Month.
From illuminating corporate buildings to holding community fundraising events, Feeding South Florida has brought the issue of hunger to the forefront of our local conversations every year. And this year is no different as they launch the “30 Ways in 30 Days” campaign, which will use every day of this month to show people all the different methods in which they can positively affect the hunger epidemic.
Showing support can be a simple gesture, such as changing a Facebook or Twitter photo to the color orange, or “liking” Feeding South Florida online (https://www.facebook.com/FeedingSFL). Or, it can be active volunteering, involving the community and donating.
On Sept. 3, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz took that kind of action, volunteering and distributing food from a Feeding South Florida Mobile Food Pantry to hundreds of Miami families in need of food assistance. From her perspective, the kind and generous act of feeding another person makes the message personal and real. And when the problem becomes real, the solution becomes equally real.
So, during Feeding South Florida’s “30 Ways in 30 Days” campaign, discover the little things you can do each day to make someone’s life easier and better. Oh, and remember to wear orange while taking your special brand of action. It’s not just for Halloween anymore; it’s to fight hunger, too.
