Orange You Glad it’s March?

When the calendar flipped to March, West Michigan got moving. Across the area, businesses, organizations and even schools dusted off their best orange décor and outfits. United in their passion for community, each advocate had to decide one thing: how will they Go Orange this month? 

Why Orange?  

Orange is the color that represents childhood hunger awareness. During the month of March, we Go Orange to raise awareness about childhood hunger and provide healthy, nourishing meals to our community. 

Advocacy in Action 

We are blown away by the creative ways our community is making Go Orange their own this year! 

Coworkers at Miller Knoll have taken the campaign to heart…and head. Several people at the organization have a created fundraising challenge. The catch? If it’s met, they will dye their hair and beards Orange! We look forward to seeing the photos as they surpass their goals.  

Over in Muskegon, Hamburger Mikey has announced they are auctioning off a cardboard cutout of the one and only Mikey to raise donations. Interested parties should act fast, as fans of the iconic restaurant may make this one a tough competition.  

Morning Belle has turned all locations orange for the month and are encouraging their patrons to show their support with a custom orange shirt! Five dollars from the sale of each shirt will be donated to our mission. The local restaurant chain is also encouraging patrons to join them as KFB volunteers in addition to hosting bag-decorating.   

Sip your support at Wonderland Distilling Co., who created the “Peel the Love” cocktail. The distillery will be donating a dollar from each orange colored and flavored creation. The cocktail bar is also hosting a Go Orange happy hour on March 15, during which they will donate two dollars from the sale of each sweet orange creation.  

Koeze has committed to adding an extra dose of sweetness to each purchase in March, where patrons can round up their total for KFB while stocking up on candy, nuts, coffee and other artisan sweets. Grabbing that spring and Easter candy has never tasted so good! 

Peachwave of Holland is offering round-ups for KFB on each frozen yogurt bowl ordered from March 21 to March 24. For those in Kent County, Furniture City Creamery will be serving up an Orange Push Up Shake on March 21. Eating frozen treats and helping the community? Count us in! 

In Forest Hills, students have rallied around our mission…literally! Forest Hills Northern will hold a Go Orange pep rally to get ready for a friendly quiz bowl competition and basketball tournament against their peers at Forest Hills Central and Forest Hills Eastern. As they compete for bragging rights, they will raise funds, wish list items and awareness for childhood food equity.
