This September IFC is teaming up with Share Our Strength to help fight childhood hunger.
This week we will be turning our logo orange to help bring awareness to an issue that affects almost 50 million people every day: Hunger. 16 million of those going hungry are children. The impact of hunger on society runs deep; it’s a health issue, it’s a school performance issue, it’s an economic issue. The hope is that it can soon be a non-issue.
September’s Go Orange campaign strives to engage the public to make ending childhood hunger a national priority. Through a variety of public engagement programs, Share Our Strength, Feeding America along with a national network of Food Banks across all 50 states focus the public’s attention in September on hunger in America as an issue that can be remedied. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
