Hunger Action Month 2018: Help Us Fight Hunger in September

Hunger Action Day – Go Orange


  • Every hour of volunteer time provides more than 100 meals! Process donations, assemble Weekend Backpack bags and pack senior boxes at The Food Bank, or harvest produce with OFH’s Full Circle Gardens. Individuals and groups are welcome!
  • Apply and self-schedule here.

Sponsor or attend an event


Host a Food and Fund Drive

  • $1 provides four meals! Host a drive with your school, church or business during the month of September.
  • Online funds drives provide an easy way to invite employees, vendors and clients to donate. Consider setting a goal of raising $300 to sponsor a Weekend Backpack child for a full school of weekend meals.
