Help fight hunger in West Michigan!

Food prices are on the rise. For most of us in the United States that means we can buy fewer luxuries. For the poor in Kent County it is a problem. For the poor in other parts of the world it is a catastrophe. Events like the Access/Grace Hunger Walk can help to offset the devastation that higher food prices are causing. Here’s how you can get involved:

Walk:

It’s not too late to sign up to be a walker. The walk itself is Saturday, May 7, 2011. Check in starts at 8 AM. Sign up at the Access website.

Give:

I realize that not everyone wants to get up early on a Saturday morning. That’s OK. Please consider donating online. I’m challenging my Eat Local, West Michigan! readers to raise at least $100. Click below to give. The hungry people in West Michigan thank you.

 

The Details:

The Access/GRACE Hunger Walk raises money for these awesome organizations:

Together, we can fight hunger (even without WalMart!)
