Group asks supporters to wear orange

On Friday, Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania is teaming up with Feeding America and other food banks to recognize Hunger Action Day.

The collaboration is intended to “inspire people to act and raise awareness of people facing the impossible choice of hunger,” according to a release from Second Harvest Marketing and Media Coordinator Natalie Massing.

The organizations are asking supporters to wear orange–the color of hunger relief and raise their voices “all across the country on behalf of millions of people facing food insecurity,” according to the release. “Sept. 23 is a day where collective efforts across the country are focused for greater impact.”

Those looking to get involved are encouraged to donate through www.nwpafoodbank.org, volunteer at the Second Harvest warehouse, office, or other location, and follow and share Second Harvest social media.

The mission of Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania is “to provide food to those in need within 11 counties of northwest Pennsylvania –Cameron, Clarion, Clearfield, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Forest, Jefferson, McKean, Venango, and Warren – while creating awareness and educating the community on the realities of hunger.”
