Participating in the Hunger Walk means that you will be joining community members and local organizations that are united in the fight against hunger. Tens of thousands of walkers have raised more than $5.5 million dollars in 37 years of Hunger Walks in response to local and worldwide need.
Funds are distributed for:
-food pantry assistance
-urban gardening & farmers market initiatives for low income families
-international development programs
Anyone who wants to join the fight against hunger and poverty can walk or pledge a walker. The 38th Annual 5k Hunger Walk will bring over 1,000 walkers and volunteers to make a difference together. Join us for this energetic community event!
The Walk starts at Park Church and winds through Heritage Hill, down Wealthy Street, through the East Hills Neighborhood and along Cherry Street before returning downtown.
