WHAT IS THE ACCESS WALK FOR GOOD FOOD?
The Access Walk for Good Food is an annual 5k walk in Grand Rapids. The goal of the Walk is to fund non-profit organizations that address issues of food access and poverty. The work of these 12 organizations aligns with the definition of Good Food, which is food that is:
Healthy (provides nourishment and enables people to thrive)
Fair (no one along the production line was exploited during its creation)
Affordable (All people have access to it)
Green (produced in an environmentally sustainable manner)
The work of the 12 organizations ranges from community gardening and urban farming, nutrition programs, food pantries and meal programs, to food justice and community development initiatives. Our collaborative work has a vision of a thriving Good Food system for all people.
The Walk brings non-profit organizations, businesses, congregations, farms, and individuals together to bring awareness of the great work happening in our community to address food access and poverty. By walking together we unite in vision of a Good Food system for all and broaden our shared impact for social good. Over the last 43 years, the Walk has raised over $6 million for dozens of local and international non-profit organizations.
