Monadnock Hunger Walk is May 4

Published: 04-13-2024 8:00 AM

The seventh annual Monadnock Hunger Walk will take place in Peterborough on Saturday, May 4.

The purpose of the walk is to raise money for local food pantries and programs. Programs that have benefited in previous walks include: Antrim Food Pantry, Lyndeborough Food Pantry, Helping Hands Pantry in Troy, Rindge Food Pantry, Jaffrey Food Pantry, Greenfield Food Pantry, Greenville/St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry,  End 68 hours of Hunger in the Conval School District and Got Lunch in the Conant School District, South Meadow Food Pantry and the New Hampshire Food Bank, which helps to fill the shelves of local food pantries and programs. Last year, the walk raised $11,900.

This year's walk will start at 9 a.m. from the Union Congregational Church, and there is a 3 1/2-mile route and a shorter route for more casual walkers or for families with small children and/or strollers. The route heads south on Concord Street, then up Pine Street to Cheney Avenue, north on Old Street Road and then down Sand Hill and back to Concord Street.

Registration and snacks available at the Union Congregational Church beginning at 8 a.m.  

The papers and instructions are available on Monadnock Hunger Walk’s Facebook page. The walk's organizing group encourages 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 to registration on May 4, and 100% of the money raised goes directly to the food programs.
