Join the Hunger Walk

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.
