The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County will hold its sixth annual Hunger Walk on Saturday.
The fundraising event will start at St. Timothy’s Church at 962 Piney Way in Morro Bay. Check-in is at 1 p.m. and the walk starts at 2 p.m. Registration is available through the Food Bank’s website at http://www.slofoodbank.kintera.org/hungerwalk.
Participants are asked to gather donations for the walk, which may include family, team or individual participation.
The nonprofit Food Bank can provide $10 worth of food for every $1 raised and help the 44,000 residents in San Luis Obispo County who live near or below the federal poverty income level. Nearly 40 percent of county residents with food insecurity are children, and a large number are seniors on fixed incomes, according to the Food Bank.
Never miss a local story.
