September is Hunger Action Month - Show Your Support & Turn Orange!
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier is asking individuals, businesses, civic organizations, elected officials, and congregations to Go Orange September 8, 2016, and all month long to show their support. Orange is the color for hunger awareness.
