More than 12,000 individuals participated in the 32nd Annual Hunger Walk, raising funds for more than 225 agencies.
A sea of orange filled Jackson Park as thousands of people paved a path to end hunger at the 32nd Annual Hunger Walk. In fiscal year 2017-2018, the walk supported more than 225 partner agencies.
Covenant United Church of Christ Food Pantry collected over $14,000 in funds. St. Clement's Open Pantry collected over $5,000. Schaumburg Township Food Pantry collected over $1,000. Together, our partners raised nearly $275,000 to help in their fight against hunger. Funds raised by the Hunger Walk support the food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters fighting hunger every day throughout Cook County. Over 32 years, the Hunger Walk has grown into the area’s largest anti-hunger rally and a strong symbol of our shared belief that no one should go hungry.
