The sixth annual Monadnock Hunger Walk will take place in Jaffrey Saturday, May 7.

The walk raises 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, Greenfield Food Pantry, Greenville/St. Vincent DePaul 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.

This year's walk will start at 9 a.m. from the United Church of Jaffrey. Check-in and snacks will be outside any time after 8 a.m. There will be two walks, one for people who can walk 4 miles and another shorter walk on sidewalks for more-casual walkers and for families with small children or strollers, which was a success with families in the 2019 Rindge walk.

The walk's organizing group encourages walkers to invite their friends and family to walk with them or sponsor them by writing a check to whatever food pantry or food program the sponsor wishes to support. Walkers bring the checks at check-in on May 7; the checks will be delivered to the programs within a few days.

Walking papers and instructions can be found on Facebook; search for Monadnock Hunger Walk.
