Awareness

 Join us for Fight Childhood Hunger Week and Wear Orange Wednesday!

This year Fight Childhood Hunger Week kicks off on April 8th, 2019, and we’re excited to share in this statewide initiative once again.  FCHW is an event that is exclusive to Montana and will run from April 8th – 14th, recognized with projects across the state designed to raise awareness and support local hunger-relief efforts.

Currently 1 out of 6 Montana children are food insecure, meaning that they aren't sure where they're next meal will come from. In addition to hindering a child's ability to learn in school and dream about their future, hunger can also cause kids to develop poor habits and health issues that may affect success in adulthood.

On April 10th, 2019 Montana No Kid Hungry is looking forward to hosting our 5th Annual Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW) campaign alongside the Governor's Office and Youth Leadership Council. Orange represents child hunger awareness, and by wearing this color collectively on the same day we can bring awareness to the challenges that food insecure children in Montana face. 

We would like every member of every community to participate in Wear Orange Wednesday! The event is an opportunity to be creative, and to show that Montanans stand united in the fight against childhood hunger.  Hats, gloves, socks, shirts, nail polish, ties, shoes, suspenders – if you have it in orange, we want to see it! 

Show your support by sharing photos to our Facebook and Instagram pages using the hashtag #WearOrangeWednesday on April 10th, 2019.
