Let’s go orange for Hunger Action Month! Join anti-hunger advocates from across the state, Food Bank staff, the offices of Assemblymembers Yamada, Fuentes, Beall, Skinner and others to participate in “The Capitol Goes Orange for Hunger Awareness” day TODAY (Wednesday, September 21st) in Sacramento. They are asking that staff members wear orange – the official color of hunger awareness – to bring attention to hunger issues across the state and highlight anti-hunger bills currently before the Governor (AB 6, AB 69, AB 152, AB402, AB581, and SB 43). There will be a Capitol Community photo op at 12:15p.m. on the West Steps of the State Capitol. We ask that you also please bring a canned food donation with you to the photo-shoot.
Learn more about the bills mentioned above on the California Association of Food Banks website.
