The Community Food Bank’s Community Food Security Center will host a “Hunger Walk” on Saturday, March 29, 2008 at Reid Park to benefit their non-traditional programs such as Home Gardening, the Marana Learning Farm, Family Advocacy, Gleaning, Farmers’ Markets, Water Harvesting and Demonstration Garden.

There also will be a food drive in conjunction with the walk and each participant is asked to bring two cans of food to the event. Many people think about feeding the hungry during the holidays, but forget the rest of the year. The “Hunger Walk” will help raise food and donations during the Food Bank’s normally slow period.

The walk will begin at 8:00 AM and will conclude by 11:00 AM. Registration fees are $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for children. Each walker will receive a “Hunger Walk” T-shirt. Final day to register is Friday, March 21, 2008. The starting point for the “Hunger Walk” will be Reid Park, Ramada 5 (use the south entrance off of 22nd street). Walkers may walk any portion of the track that circles Reid Park at their own pace. You may register to not walk and still receive an event T-shirt.

A limited supply of T-shirts will be available the day of the walk for $25.00.

The sponsor for the “Hunger Walk” is the University of Phoenix. At the conclusion of the “Hunger Walk” the University of Phoenix Learning Center at 300 S. Craycroft will be wrapping up their two week long “March Against Hunger.”
