Wear orange, fight hunger

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is hoping to raise hunger awareness and funds to fill empty stomachs.

The food bank is encouraging people to wear orange on Hunger Action Day, Thursday, Sept. 8., and throughout September, which is Hunger Action Month.

Officials say one-in-eight Pennsylvanians go hungry and one-in-five is a child.

To help, you can start a virtual food drive, create a fundraising team, or donate to help the food bank reach its September goal of $30,000.

We will have more on this movement Thursday on ABC27 News at 7.
