How ‘bout a lovely, springtime Saturday morning stroll in Reid Park to benefit the Food Security Programs of the Community Food Bank? The First Annual Hunger Walk will begin at Ramada 5 (enter from 22nd St. ) on Saturday March 29 at 8am. Participants can walk any portion of the track that circles Reid Park at their own pace and we’ll wrap up by 11:00 am.

Pre-registration is required and can be done through our website: Registration fees are $20 per adult and $10 per child and both fees include a free event T-shirt). Final day to register is Friday, March 21st (so we can order the T-shirts in time). There is no need to get sponsors but participants are encourage to each bring two cans of food with them as the event begins with a food drive.  You may register, but not walk, and still receive an event T-shirt.

This Hunger Walk is to financially support the programs that work on long-term solutions to hunger and food insecurity in our community—programs such as Home Gardening, the Marana Learning Farm, Family Advocacy, Gleaning, Farmers’ Markets, and the Nuestra Tierra Demonstration Garden .

So please, pass this along to others, gather your friends, family, pets, and congregations, and let’s head for the park!
