Thousands of students, businesses, and individuals are wearing orange today to raise awareness of childhood hunger in West Michigan.

1 in 4 kids in West Michigan face hunger every day. The rate of childhood hunger in Michigan is higher than the national average. It's a very real problem. Fixing it starts with awareness, then gets followed up with action.

We're working with Kids' Food Basket to help bring attention to the issue.

Join us.

Volunteer, donate, and make a difference.
