You can GO ORANGE for the entire month of September to show your support for Hunger Action Month and our mission to end hunger in southwestern Wisconsin.  See below to learn how!

  • Food Fight Against Hunger:  Dine at any of the 19 area Food Fight locations, make a donation or order off the special Harvest Menu at each restaurant.  An item off of the Harvest Menu will trigger a $1 donation from Food Fight!  Restaurants will collect donations for Second Harvest for the entire month of September.

  • Give food and funds. Organize a community food & fund drive or event with your business, civic, faith-based or youth group to collect financial and non- perishable food donations. Every $1 donated provides 3 meals and each 1.2 pounds of food provides 1 meal. Start your Food & Fund Drive or Event now.
