This Thursday, May 19th Stockton/San Joaquin (EFB) invites the community to support its “Orange Day of Action Against Hunger” by wearing the color orange.
Orange symbolizes hunger awareness. As the EFB spotlights the reality that hunger doesn't take a holiday with its “Thanksgiving in May” campaign, wearing orange will be a meaningful way of sharing the important message regarding local food insecurity challenges within the San Joaquin region.
Local residents are encouraged this Thursday to share a photo of themselves wearing orange with the #ThanksgivingInMay hashtag on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. For every photo shared, $10 will be donated to the EFB’s work by an anonymous food bank supporter.

One thing is for sure: hunger doesn’t take a holiday. Today, thousands of individuals are struggling to find enough food to fill their fridges and feed their families throughout our county.
Unlike the year-end holiday season, the springtime marks a historic drop in financial support for our ongoing work to “feed the need” in San Joaquin County. With your support, we can change this.
Join us this month to kick off our new “Thanksgiving in May” campaign. By the end of May, we need your help to reach our goal of $50,000 to support our daily efforts to deliver direct food aid to hundreds of people in our community.
No donation is too small. In fact, a contribution of $25 will help feed 5 individuals in need this month.
Together, we can bring our vital work of providing emergency food assistance to new heights.
Supporting our work is easier than ever. Please send your donation to 7 W. Scotts Avenue, Stockton, CA 95203 and mark your check or envelope with "Thanksgiving in May" or donate online today.
