September 10, 2020, 6:00 AM - 9:00 PM
September is National Hunger Action Month; To kick-off the campaign Mayor Franco has proclaimed Thursday, September 10, 2020 as the 7th Annual GO ORANGE DAY for Hunger Action in Bloomingdale. Feeding America has projected an increase in food insecurity during the upcoming year due to the health and economic impact of COVID-19. For the Northern Illinois Food Bank’s 13-county service area, this could result in a 70% increase in food insecure neighbors, resulting in an additional 200,000 people, with 1 in 5 children not knowing where their next meal is coming from.
The Village urges everyone to join to Take Action Against Hunger!
• Wear Orange on GO ORANGE DAY;
• Encourage conversation about hunger;
• Volunteer/Donate Food/Supplies to the Bloomingdale Township Food Pantry and other local pantries during September Hunger Action month at the Bloomingdale Village Hall, Library, Fire Department or Park District JRC;
• Make a donation to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
