MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Go Orange Day is here!

September 15 is the day everyone in southwestern Wisconsin is asked to help raise awareness about hunger, not only by wearing orange, but by showing it off too; sharing pictures far and wide to show they care. It’s all part of Hunger Action Month.

All day, people will be sharing photos of themselves in the gallery below and we will show off those snapshots throughout our newscasts, from The Morning Show, all the way to NBC15 News at 10.

Each of the first 500 pictures uploaded will generate 100 meals thanks to our generous Hunger Action Month sponsors. With the community rallying together and donning their orange, that goal was reached just before noon! All those pics will help provide 50,000 meals in our community.

If you are wearing orange, don’t hesitate to upload your picture. Every one of them helps raise awareness to the fact that thousands of people in our community struggle with food insecurity.

“All throughout the year, there’s plenty of times where we ask people to reach into their wallet, but today is one of those days where we’re like don’t reach into the wallet, reach into the closet,” Kris Tazelaar with Second Harvest Foodbank said. “Find that orange shirt, take a picture, post it online. It’s the easiest way to help end hunger in our community.”

So, don’t forget to dig deep into that closet, grab something orange, and wear it proudly.
