The color orange may be associated with a certain school, with a certain longhorn mascot in these parts, but across the country, orange is popping up everywhere for a different reason.
September is designated as Hunger Action Month, with orange the signature color of the Feed America effort. Food banks are encouraging people to join in the fight against hunger in their communities through various donation and volunteer programs. Wearing orange is part of the effort to raise awareness.
While Hunger Action Month's shade is more carrot color, or better yet, fruit orange, burnt orange is welcome, too. Anything to acknowledge the mission.
Visit the Houston Food Bank's website for a calendar of events for volunteering or donations.
