The front of both Waterbury City Hall and the Chase Municipal Building are glowing orange for the entire month of September to help shine light on the more than 490,000 people in Connecticut, including more than 150,000 children, who struggle with hunger. It’s all due to September being Hunger Action Month, a nationwide effort to increase awareness about hunger in our local communities.
“City Hall and the Chase Municipal Building are two of most popular buildings in the City of Waterbury,” said Nancy L. Carrington, Connecticut Food Bank’s president & CEO. “By lighting up the front of the buildings orange this month, our hope is to engage people to take action and help spread the word about how pervasive hunger is, right here in Connecticut.”
The lighting of the City Hall and the Chase Municipal Building could not have been possible without the cooperation of the City of Waterbury and the assistance of the mayor’s Chief of Staff Joseph A. Geary.
In addition, Connecticut Food Bank is asking people to Speak Out Against Hunger this month. To see how you can help, ideas are listed on a 30 Ways in 30 Days calendar on www.ctfoodbank.org. To learn more about Hunger Action Month, visit www.ctfoodbank.org, or www.hungeractionmonth.org.
