    Three nonprofit organizations are working together to "STOP Hunger" as part of Hunger Action Month, which kicks off in September.

    Residents can donate $25 to receive discount cards from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Pitkin Plaza at 157 Orange Street.

    The cards can then be used to toward discounted purchases at the following locations throughout the month of September:

    • Elm City Market is offering 5 percent off
    • Idiom is offering 20 percent off a handbag
    • G. Café Bakery is offering 15 percent off a purchase
    • Jake’s Wayback Burgers in Orange is offering 15 percent off
    • Trinity Bar and Restaurant is offering 10 percent off

    Customers are also encouraged to donate as part of the Pin-Up Campaign, in which the donor's name and amount are written down and posted on the wall of one of the following businesses:

    • Christy’s Irish Pub in New Haven
    • Duffy’s Tavern in Orange
    • Modern Apizza in New Haven
    • Trinity Bar and Restaurant in New Haven
    • Woodbridge Gathering in Woodbridge

    Community Soup Kitchen, FISH of Greater New Haven and Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry are behind the initiative. Together, the three organizations feed more than 100,000 people annually.
