With Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton having proclaimed September as “Hunger Action Month” in the city of Phoenix, the tallest and brightest representation of the hunger issue in Arizona began Sept. 4 when the 40-story Chase Tower started glowing orange.

As part of Feeding America’s national Light up Hunger initiative, prominent buildings and landmarks across the country will be lit up orange — the color of hunger — during Hunger Action Month. The 483-foot Chase Tower will join the Jeweler’s Building in Chicago, the Illinois State Capitol Building, the PECO building in Philadelphia and ferris wheel known as “Big Eli” in Ft. Smith Arkansas in to remind everyone that more than 1.4 million Arizonans are facing hunger on a daily basis.
