Hunger Walk/Run 2016 Is This Weekend!

Hunger Walk

This year marks the 32nd anniversary of Hunger Walk/Run – taking steps together with our community in the fight against local hunger!

The Hunger Walk/Run — an annual 5K walk and “fun run” begun in 1984 — is a project of the Atlanta Community Food Bank that unites our community to raise awareness and critical funds for local hunger relief.  Proceeds from the event benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank and other local nonprofit organizations that support food pantries, community kitchens, shelters and other programs for people in need of food assistance. These benefiting partner organizations help recruit participants and receive a percentage of the funds raised to support their direct hunger relief programs.

In its 32 years, Hunger Walk/Run has raised over $7 million for hunger relief – enough to provide 28 million meals!

Whether you choose to walk or run, you’ll join thousands of participants coming together to support our neighbors in need and celebrate achievements already made in the fight against hunger. The family-friendly, festival atmosphere at Turner Field’s Green Lot includes food trucks, games, educational activities, live entertainment and more!

In 2015, more than 15,000 participants came together to raise over $800,000 to combat hunger in our community!  This year, you can help make a real difference in the lives of your fellow Georgians by helping us exceed our fundraising goals. Take the next step and join us on March 13, 2016! (via Atlanta Community Food Bank)

We’ll be there, we hope you join us to support this important cause! Register here!

If you can’t make it Sunday, you can still contribute by “Dining and Donating” at the restaurants below. These restaurants will provide an additional item line to their checks where guests can write-in a donation that will go directly to the ACFB (kinda like an extra tip line). It could be anything from $1 to $100 – all up to the guests! Again this is purely a written-in donation added to guests’ checks at the restaurants.
