29th Annual Hunger Walk
Saturday, June 21st
Help us make the most of our Hunger Walk efforts!
On Saturday, June 21st at 8:30am people throughout Cook County will join together in their commitment to fight hunger by participating in a 5K event at Soldier Field in Chicago.
This annual run/walk/crawl/wave event both increases awareness about hunger in our communities and raises funds to help feed hungry families!
Recognizing our centennial this year, Marillac St. Vincent Family Services is proud to be a pillar in the communities we serve. Through our food pantry, senior programs, family services, and youth programs, we help strengthen and empower Chicagoans in need to reach their fullest potential. For every Hunger Walk participant who walks on our behalf, the Greater Chicago Food Depository credits us $12 to buy food. Through GCFD, $12 can buy 11 packages of pork chops, 16 bags of rice, or 45 cans of kidney beans!
Not only do we earn food credits for Hunger Walk participants, but 100% of donations will go directly to our pantry. Plus, the Greater Chicago Food Depository will match donations, up to $1,000!
What You Can Do
This is a once-a-year opportunity to take a simple step with great implications against hunger.
Grandparents, babies, individuals, families, kids - everyone is welcome to join our Hunger Walk team! You do not have to be physically fit, and there's no cost to join. Plus, you can sign up for a space on the bus, and we will transport everyone to and from Soldier Field. By simply showing up, you take a stand against hunger and show your support for the 1 in 6 Chicagoans unsure as to where they'll get their next meal.
