Have you Brown Bagged it for Hunger yet? If not, it's easy as 1, 2, 3. 1. Instead of buying your lunch for the day, bring it instead. 2. Donate the money you would have spent on lunch to the Food Bank. 3. Feed a child in need. It's that simple! All donations will go towards child hunger initiatives like the Backpack Program.
