Join us for the 2017 Hunger Walk!

The Hunger Walk will bring over one thousand walkers and volunteers for the 40th Access Hunger Walk on Sunday, May 7, 2017. 

Join us at 1:30 pm at Park Church (10 E Park Place, Grand Rapids, MI 49503) for food, fun, and music. The Walk kicks off at 2:15 pm. We walk rain or shine!

The goal of the Walk is to bring together walkers, congregations, businesses, and donors to support 20 local and international non-profit organizations that are working to create a thriving food system in which all people have access to healthy and affordable food. The 40th Annual Walk is focused on both celebration of the work we have done in 40 years, and solidarity - standing with those who yet experience systemic injustice and poverty.

Our goal this year is to raise $110,000, with an online goal of $40,000 (online donations do not reflect the total amount of funds raised).

The agenda for this year's Hunger Walk is as follows:

1:30 pm: Registration Food Festival
  • Live music from Standing Sun
  • Kids activities including face painting, chalk drawing, photo booth, and bounce house
  • Food truck featuring Blue Spoon (come hungry!)
2:15 pm: Opening Ceremony with Mayor Rosalynn Bliss

2:30 pm: 5K Walk begins

After the Walk...... more Food Festival fun!

Join us at One Trick Pony after the Walk - proceeds will go to the Walk

Walkers who raise over $100 in pledges will receive a 40th Annual Access Hunger Walk T-shirt at no cost. T-shirts will be available for purchase at $10 each.
