Across the country, people were "going orange" Thursday for Hunger Action month by donning clothing bearing the color.
One in six people, including one in four children, are food insecure. That means they don't eat enough every day.
At the Huntington Area Food Bank, they serve about 95,000 clients each month in the Tri-State. That's why they are working to raise awareness about hunger issues throughout the month of September.
"Hunger is a hidden problem,” said Scott Frasure, director of development for the Huntington Area Food Bank. “A lot of people don't realize the seriousness of it, and a lot of families, especially in the region. So at Huntington Area Food Bank, we're doing everything we can to get that message out and to do something about it."
They encourage people to get involved any way they can, either by hosting your own food drive, donating food or money, or volunteering at one of the many agencies the food bank supports. Find out more ways to get involved by checking out the 30 ways in 30 days calendar:
