9/6: Feed My People Food Bank


Eau Claire (FEED MY PEOPLE)- This September Feed My People Food Bank, together with the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, will mobilize across all 50 states in an effort to bring an end to hunger.

Hunger Action Month is designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of the fact that 41 million Americans, including nearly 13 million children, are food insecure, according to the USDA. Feed My People is promoting Hunger Action Month by asking people to stand against hunger and volunteer, give or connect to support our mission to end hunger in west central Wisconsin. Feed My People’s targeted day to engage the community in coordinated hunger relief and awareness building efforts will take place on September 14th, our Hunger Action Day.

Because orange represents hunger awareness, each of the 900+ United Way volunteers at 40+ nonprofits will be wearing orange shirts during United Way of Chippewa Valley’s Day of Caring. Over 150 of these volunteers will be repackaging food specifically for Feed My People to distribute to all of our partners.

Phoenix Park Bridge in Eau Claire will be lighted orange from 5 to 11 p.m. on Sept. 14th and 5 a.m. to sunrise the following morning on Sept. 15th.
