This year's walk will start at 9 a.m. from Hancock Congregational Church, 47 Main St. Registration and snacks will be outside after 8 a.m. There will be two walks, one of approximately three miles and a shorter walk on sidewalks for more-casual walkers and for families with small children or strollers.

Organizers encourage walkers to invite their friends and family to walk with them or to sponsor them by writing a check to whatever food pantry or food program the sponsor wishes to support. Walkers bring the checks at registration on May 7, and the checks will be delivered to the programs within a few days.
