Hunger Action Month

stage-HAMDid you know that hunger affects over 46 million Americans? That’s 1 out of every 6 people! Click here to do something about it.

Every September, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano joins Feeding America to Turn Orange™ for Hunger Action Month. We ask supporters like you to become part of the movement to solve hunger, all month long.

Every $1 provides $4 worth of nutritious food to people at risk of hunger in Contra Costa and Solano counties. Show your support here to help your neighbors in need and help us spread the word!

Easy actions to take against hunger

TURN ORANGE™ by wearing a lot of orange in September. Orange is the official color of hunger awareness and makes a bold statement to start the conversation about hunger.
