Hunger Action Month


    September is Hunger Action Month™

    Nearly 200,000 residents in Westchester County are hungry. This September, GO ORANGE to raise awareness about this critical issue. As individuals, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting more food to those who need it. Whether it's by advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or volunteering, you can find the way that's right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month. Together, we can solve hunger!







    The feeling of running on empty is a reality for 200,000 of our Westchester neighbors. Together, we can help everyone reach their full potential.

    You can't do much on an empty stomach. But you can help end hunger.
