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 14 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 14 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 41 years, the Walk has raised over $6 million for dozens of local and international non-profit organizations. Our goal this year is to have over 1,000 walkers and raise $110,000.
What if everyone in our community could have equal access to food that nourishes, creates good jobs, is affordable, and treats the earth well as it is produced? What if non-profit organizations, businesses, congregations, farms, and individuals could come together to achieve this vision?
We believe it’s possible.
That’s why we walk.
Share the vision.
Walk with us.
