Now is the time to lace up your shoes and hit the pavement for a tremendous cause! Join us on Monday, May 28th for the 15th annual Hunger Walk and 5K Run! This year's race starts bright and early at 9AM. Since its inception in 2004, the Hunger Walk and 5K Run has raised more than $1,800,000, the equivalent of 5,400,000 meals, for Freestore Foodbank community partners serving 20 counties in Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. With each step you are taking you are directly impacting lives of those in our community. Spend your Memorial Day with us and walk, run, skip, or stroll around the Ohio River! Register now and take a stand against hunger!

Your registration or donation will help support the Freestore Foodbank's network of 400 partner food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and community centers. Through this network, we are able to provide 24 million meals each year to hungry children and families in 20 counties in Southwest Ohio, Southeast Indiana and Northern Kentucky. One step a time, one dollar at a time, together we can solve hunger.
