Walk Against Hunger
ABOUT THE WALK
The Foodshare Walk Against Hunger provides much-needed support for all of our participating partner programs.
Over 128,000 people, including 50,000 children, are in need of
emergency food assistance in the greater Hartford region each year.
Foodshare is working to address this issue by engaging the community
at-large and building a movement focused on decreasing the need of our
hungry neighbors. The Foodshare Walk Against Hunger is one key way in
which we, as a community, can raise awareness of hunger.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support Foodshare on May 5th. With your help, we raised more than $638,000 to continue fighting hunger here in Connecticut, including over $190,000 in support from The Hartford. Celebrating 30 years of Walking Against Hunger, we couldn't be more proud of this show of unity by the greater Hartford community. Check out our photos from Walk Day!
This year's Walk brought out an estimated 4,000 people! Teams were grouped by type, battling it out for the most donations raised. And our 2013 winners are:
