VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - The Terre Haute Catholic Charities Food Bank provides 2.5 million meals each year.

Part of that effort is made possible through Orange Friday.   

On Tuesday the group held its Orange Friday Kick-Off luncheon. Community partners joined Catholic Charities to talk about hunger in our community.

The campaign uses the color orange to raise awareness about hunger-related issues here at home.

“Really what food insecurity is talking about is the lack of adequate access to nutritious food to lead a healthy lifestyle,” explained Jennifer Buell with Catholic Charities.

Orange Friday is Nov. 17.

If you'd like to be involved with this project, stop by Baesler's Market that day where you can buy a button for $3.

That money will be used by the food bank and get this, $3 can provide food for a family of four for an entire day.
