Although I bleed green and white (thanks to Michigan State football), my favorite color in September is orange. And it’s not just because my oldest daughter is a Syracuse University incoming freshman.
Orange is the official color of Hunger Action Month, an annual campaign of Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks.
