The 12th Annual Hunger Walk & 5K Run will take place on Monday, May 25, 2015. Online registration will open in February. Please check back for more information.
Thanks to the record 5,310 walkers and runners who joined us on Monday, May 26, 2014 for the 11th Annual Hunger Walk & 5K Run.
The event provides the Freestore Foodbank’s more than 275 community partners – including food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, eldercare and childcare facilities, community centers and residential programs – with the opportunity to raise money to supplement their food operations. Community partners recruit teams and raise money through pledges of support from their communities. All of the money raised is used toward the agencies’ food distribution costs.
Check out these great photos from the event.
“The Hunger Walk is different from any other 5K in Cincinnati because it allows the Freestore Foodbank to shine the spotlight on our community partners and the neighborhoods that they serve,” said Kurt Reiber, President and CEO of the Freestore Foodbank. “It’s a chance for people to support organizations that are helping our neighbors in need in the communities where they live and work.”
