Are you seeing a lot of orange around town? Well, get ready to see more!

September is Hunger Action month and in support of Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest N.C., the Reynolds American Plaza and Nissan Building in Winston-Salem will be lit up orange, the color of hunger awareness.

The goal of Hunger Awareness Month is to bring attention to the problem of hunger and community support to organizations that are a critical source of food for hungry children, families and seniors across the country.

Second Harvest is encouraging people to wear orange on Thursday.

Local businesses all over the Piedmont will have orange displays throughout the month to show their support.

One in six people go hungry every day in the Piedmont.
