The Walk

The Great Food Walk

The April 10th Great Food Walk is cancelled due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) situation.

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 at a safe place of your choosing between now and Friday, April 10th.

When: Between now and April 10th 2020

Where: A safe trail, track, treadmill or walking route of your choice.

Proceeds raised from this Walk, will go to:
Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry, Inc. (www.loavesfishespantry.org) (90%) &
Sharing, Inc. (www.walkingongoodfriday.org) (10%)

How to Get Ready

  • Sponsor sheets can filled out or downloaded here
  • Find sponsors and sign them up on your sponsor sheet. Please only one walker
    per sponsor sheet. Finding sponsors is key to supporting your walk & we count
    on your sponsors’ donations. Checks should be payable to GFW
  • The more money you raise, the more you help others. In 2019, 138 walkers from 21
    towns walked 625 miles and collectively raised over $22,000 for Loaves
    & Fishes and Sharing, Inc.! There were nearly 60 people behind the scenes making sure the
    walkers were supported every step of the way!
  • Let your muscles know you’re going to walk. The walk’s goal is 5 miles. Some people do 10 or even 15 miles.
