Food for Thought...

Greetings!

 

Welcome Friends & Supporters! 

 

Sandie, our mascot, has recently pointed to the calendar to remind us that the Hunger walk is only a couple of months away.  It's time to form a team and get involved! Start by calling your extended family, talking to people at work, asking your neighbors to walk with you.  The need in our county is great, particularly in the face of impending cuts in social services from both the state and federal level.  The Hunger Walk is a fun, family activity, that unites us in the most basic expression of caring and hospitality -providing someone who is hungry with a healthy meal to help them on their way.  It's as though we are walking with them in their efforts to become stronger and more self-reliant, identifying with the fact that healthy food is not a luxury but a necessity for us all.  

 

The Hunger Walk not only helps the Food Bank, but agencies that are in our network. You can join their team by contacting the agency directly. For more information visit our website

 

Let's make Sandie happy!
