Advocates spark conversation among colleagues, friends, and strangers to raise awareness about how poverty and food insecurity affects our neighbors and community.
The purpose of this event is simple:
1 Dress + 5 Days = HUGE Community Impact!
Food insecurity describes a household’s inability to provide enough food for every person to live an active, healthy life. The dress (or outfit) represents the percentage of people in Leon County who are food insecure, with a large focus on that population with children.
The number of children locally who go to bed without food is astounding, and part of our mission is to raise awareness and funds to assist in providing meals and bridging the gap.

“Most people don’t know how deeply poverty and hunger impact this region; the stats are shocking, but they serve to amplify and call attention to issues we are helping to solve,” said Alexis Simoneau, Funding Director of JLT. “Every penny from the campaign serves the community and the projects we do.”
Our League’s goal is to raise $45,000 to be used to directly impact our
community partners and every little bit helps!
