For Hunger Action Month this September, Southeast Texas Food Bank will join Feeding America and other network member food banks to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of people facing the impossible choice of hunger. Food banks around the country are working to make a real and lasting impact on food insecurity in their communities, and they are asking for the public’s support.

These shirts are unique and one of a kind, designed by local Elementary Students. Wear your shirt ALL MONTH to help go Orange and spread hunger awareness in our community.

Thank you for partnering with the Southeast Texas Food Bank today!

Did you know that a $10 donation can provide up to 30 meals for desperate people in your community? By making a donation, you are helping to ensure that hungry children in Southeast Texas are adequately nourished, that none of our senior citizens are forced to chose between medicine and food, and that every family facing a crisis can at least have the assurance of food on the table.

Your gift goes a long, long way!
