On October 13th, 2013, the Food Bank of Albemarle is holding its Annual Walk for Hunger Fundraiser. In the Northeastern region of North Carolina, hunger affects 1 out of 5 households or almost 20% of the people in the region. Every dollar raised will provide approximately 5 pounds of food. If the Food Bank reaches their goal of $40,000, they will be able to provide an additional 183,000 meals to families who rely on emergency soup kitchens and pantries to survive.
The Food Bank does not charge a registration fee for participants, but asks for pledges from friends and families.
