This event has been part of the Elizabeth City community for more than 30 years, and Food Bank of the Albemarle will be celebrating the 34th Anniversary of the Walk for Hunger in 2017. Held the second weekend in October, the event entails a 4.1 K walk through the Riverside area of Elizabeth City. Food Bank of the Albemarle relies on the generosity, enthusiasm and participation of local communities, churches, businesses, organizations and individuals to help raise the money necessary to fight hunger in northeast North Carolina during this annual event. Start planning now to organize a team, fundraise for hunger relief and join us for a fun walk through Elizabeth City.
This year’s Walk for Hunger is scheduled for Saturday, October 14, 2017.
We are extremely happy to say that our fundraising total for the 2016 Walk for Hunger was $42,500. That will provide 170,000 meals!
Here’s how YOU can get involved:
- GATHER your friends, family and co-workers and form a Walk for Hunger team.
- FUNDRAISE! There are many ways to raise money as a team to help feed our hungry neighbors in need – and you can be creative! Maybe it is a yard sale, asking for sponsors for your team or organizing an event to benefit your team. Please make checks payable to Food Bank of the Albemarle.
- WALK! Join us for a fun filled day and 4.1 mile walk in October.
When you participate in the Walk for Hunger, you are MAKING A DIFFERENCE in the life of someone in need.
