Great Food Walk – to Benefit Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry
Friday, April 10th, 2020 was to be the 36th annual Great Food Walk (GFW) to benefit Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry (90%) and Sharing, Inc. (10%). With painstaking consideration, we have decided to cancel the Great Food Walk on April 10th.
In the spirit of community action to help address needs – especially now in this moment – we are making an
appeal for you to take up either a virtual walk or a walk on your own time, where you like, between now and Friday, April 10th. Please choose a safe place to walk.
With this energy harnessed we can all still make a difference. You and your sponsors’ donations are most welcome! You can make donations here online or by mailing your donation with your virtual walk sheet.
We extend a gracious thank you for your participation and generosity!
In last year’s Great Food Walk (GFW), 138 walkers from 21 towns walked 625 miles collectively and raised over $22,000 together with 60 volunteers all supporting Loaves and Fishes and Sharing, Inc. Walkers can choose to walk solo or with a team. Join with friends, family, clubs, school groups, sports teams, work colleagues or houses of worship to build enthusiasm and grow support – as more people choose to walk; so too does nourishment flourish!
To get started, download the Sponsor Sheet or fill it out online and start signing up sponsors. Then pick a safe place to walk, complete your walk, collect your pledged donations and donate online or mail your donation.
If you are unable to walk, then consider sponsoring a walker or donating to GFW (non-profit) online.
