Take Action to End Hunger this September

September is Hunger Action Month. Learn how you can get involved in the fight against hunger!

Nothing Runs On Empty - Hunger Action Month

The fact that you’re reading this means you want to end hunger in our community. With 1 in 8 Middle and West Tennesseans facing hunger, it’s hard to know where to start.

Don’t get overwhelmed by the problem.

Become a part of the solution and join us in celebrating Hunger Action Month!

For the month of September, we’re uniting with our Feeding America network of food banks to bring awareness to food insecurity and urge individuals to take action in the fight against hunger.

Here’s how you can get involved and bring us one step closer to a hunger free Tennessee:

Go Orange

Orange is the symbolic color of hunger relief, and when you Go Orange, you let your friends, family, and coworkers know that you’re joining us in the fight against hunger! Show your support by wearing all orange, turning your Facebook profile picture orange, or even dressing up your pet up in orange!

The Nashville skyline will Go Orange on September 13, Hunger Action Day. Post a picture of the orange skyline using #HungerActionTN and tag @2harvestmidtn.

Paper Plate Project
