This year marks the 37th anniversary of Hunger Walk Run - taking steps together with our community in the fight against local hunger!
The Hunger Walk Run -- an annual 5K walk and “fun run” began in 1984 -- is an event of the Atlanta Community Food Bank that unites our community to raise awareness and critical funds for local hunger relief. Proceeds from the event benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank and other local nonprofit organizations that support food pantries, community kitchens, shelters and other programs for people in need of food assistance. These benefiting partner organizations help recruit participants and receive a percentage of the funds raised to support their direct hunger relief programs.
In its 37 years, Hunger Walk Run has raised over $11 million for hunger relief - enough to help provide over 44 million meals!
This year looks a little different - Hunger Walk Run 2021 has gone virtual! Whether you choose to walk or run, you’ll join thousands of participants virtually coming together to support our neighbors in need and celebrate achievements already made in the fight against hunger.
Although the pandemic changed the dynamic of our event and forced us to go virtual in 2020, participants came together to raise over $800,000 to combat hunger in our community. This year, you can help make a real difference in the lives of your fellow Georgians by helping us exceed our fundraising goals. Take the next step and join us for our virtual event!
