The Connecticut Food Bank Walk Against Hunger is an annual community gathering that increases hunger awareness and generates much needed funds to combat hunger in Connecticut.
The Walk Against Hunger will increase Connecticut Food Bank’s capacity to fight hunger and most importantly celebrates our New England Spirit of neighbor helping neighbor!
Thanks to our team of 18 WALKERS for the 40th Connecticut Food Bank Walk Against Hunger on Sunday, April 23rd. Thank you to everyone who so generously supported our walkers! Our FPCNH raised at least $1,315. We enjoyed an easy walk together at Lighthouse Point Park. A special addition to our team was the Reverend Bonita Grubbs who earlier Sunday was our guest preacher and who leads Christian Community Action, the recipient of our “wheel barrow” donations.
Team members included Lynn Autry, Jin Chen, Zigang Chen, Bruce Gordon, Rona Johnston Gordon, Brian Gray, Dick Hasbany, Jane Hindenlang, Mark Lanz, Riley Lanz, Craig Machado, George Rupp, Nancy Rupp, Erin Schutte, Tyler Wadzinski, Betty Whitney, Jim Whitney… and Erin and Tyler’s adorable dog.… Continue
On Sunday, May 17th, First Presbyterian Church of New Haven carried out our promised Walk Against Hunger in support of the Connecticut Food Bank. Buoyed by CLOC food and Shore Grass music, our team donned T shirts, posed for a group photo (see pictured) and enjoyed the two to three mile stroll under welcome cloud cover and gentle breeze. All together, our church raised $2,240 to help feed hunger people. We think this is a record dollar amount for our church.
Thank you to everyone who walked, donated, or did both!
