September is Hunger Action Month and SVA has joined the fight to end hunger by wearing orange. September 14, 2017 is Go Orange Day and SVA employees wore orange and posted a company picture to NBC15 Madison’s Facebook page and on Instagram using the #Orange4SHFB. For every photo posted, 23 meals will be donated in the fight to end hunger. The goal is 3,000 photos which would mean 75,000 meals donated to Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin.
Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in southwestern Wisconsin, serving nearly 141,000 people annually, including 43 percent who are children. Through food and financial donations and volunteer support, Second Harvest acquires and distributes food to 225 partner programs in 16 counties. Since 1986 Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin has put more than 100 million meals on the tables of the 1 in 8 who are facing hunger in southwestern Wisconsin.
