Freestore Foodbank’s 14th annual Hunger Walk & 5K Run takes place at 9 a.m. on Memorial Day, May 29 at The Banks, downtown. This makes a great way for kids and families to help others; the event raises funds for the Freestore Foodbank’s 350 partner agencies that distribute 23 million meals each year. Online registration is open until 2 p.m. May 26, and ranges from $20 – $25. To join or donate to a team, call 513-482-FOOD (3663) or visit cincinnatihungerwalk.org.
Can’t make the Hunger Walk? You can still make a contribution, right out of your own mailbox! Stamp Out Hunger takes place May 13; it’s a national food drive hosted by the National Association of Letter Carriers. Just pack up canned goods and other non-perishable food items in a sturdy bag and leave them for your letter carrier to pick up. Donate canned veggies and fruits, canned soups, peanut butter, mac-n-cheese, cereal, canned chicken, tuna and chili. Learn more at freestorefoodbank.org/stampouthunger.
