On Thursday, Boston will be going orange!

Orange is the official color of Hunger Action Day (and Hunger Action Month), which is Thursday, September 14. You can show your support and help raise awareness of hunger by wearing orange and posting on social media.

Boston buildings and landmarks will be lighting up on Hunger Action Day too! We thank them to supporting the 1 in 10 people across Eastern Massachusetts who struggle to get enough healthy food to eat.
