One of award-winning South Florida PR firm Durée & Company’s nonprofit clients, Feeding South Florida™, is raising awareness of hunger in the state of Florida during Hunger Action Month (HAM), a nationwide initiative of Feeding America™.
Since 2010, we have had the pleasure of working with Feeding South Florida, which has a mission to end hunger in South Florida by providing immediate access to nutritious food, leading hunger and poverty advocacy efforts, and transforming lives through innovative programming and education. We are proud to support HAM, as more than 785,040 South Floridians experience food insecurity every day, with 280,630 of those being children. Last year, Durée & Company went orange for Go Orange Day on Sept. 3, and we plan to do the same this year! Will you join us? Below are just a few of the many ways you can help fight hunger with us:
- The following restaurants will be giving back to Feeding South Florida during the month of September on various dates: Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar, PDQ, Blue Martini, BRIO Tuscan Grille, Spazio Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar, Burger 21 and Hoffman’s Chocolates. Check the calendar to see when you should dine at the respective locations and which are contributing.
- Join us for the 24 Hour Sort-A-Thon on Friday, Sept. 11. For a full 24 hours, Feeding South Florida, community partners and volunteers will be sorting donated food during eight shifts of three hours each. Donate just a little bit of your time for a big cause.
- Get some exercise in. On Saturday, Sept. 19, 100 percent of the proceeds from the 1 p.m. community Pilates class at Pure Pilates in Fort Lauderdale will go to Feeding South Florida. There’s nothing like getting fit for a good cause!
Last but not least, remember to wear orange on Thursday, Sept. 3, and share your pictures with us. Use the following hashtags to help us find you: #FSFgoesorange #HungerActionMonth #FSFendsHunger.
