RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - September is Hunger Action Month, when the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, including FeedMore, unites to urge individuals to take action in their communities.

Hunger Action Month includes several initiatives including "Go Orange" day on September 5th. That's why you'll will see the orange logo across our social media platforms.

The goal of FeedMore’s Hunger Action Month is to mobilize all of Central Virginia to get involved with hunger-relief efforts in our community.

In Central Virginia, 1 in 7 individuals (206,770 individuals - including 50,960 children) is food-insecure and together, and FeedMore hopes to change that.
