We’re excited to announce that this year marks the 35th Anniversary of The Walk for Hunger!eblast-WALK-Tower

New for 2018, The Walk will now be held on Saturday, September 29th to coincide with Hunger Action Month. 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.

It’s never too early to start getting your team ready for The Walk for Hunger- 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 on Saturday, September 29th.

The 2018 Team Captain’s toolkit will be updated with new information.
