Every September, Armstrong works to Avenge Hunger by collecting resources to help supply community feeding programs and bring awareness to the need that exists. A Walk For Hunger will provide financial support to community feeding programs in the communities served by the Zelienople Armstrong Office. Our local feeding programs that we partner with are: The Lighthouse Foundation, Southwest Butler Food Cupboard, Gleaner's Food Bank, Victory Family Church and Holy Redeemer Social Services in Ellwood City.
A Walk For Hunger is also a Senior project for a selected Seneca Valley High School Senior each year. This year, we're excited to announce Avery Flood will be our Senior to continue this fantastic tradition! Avery will learn all of the Breaking Bread's 4 key initiatives: Raising Awareness for students and people in the community, volunteering at our local food banks for food collection and distribution, and collecting food donations and money to be directly distributed to our food banks!
This year, we will be holding A Walk For Hunger in person on Sunday, September 18th at Zelienople Community Park in Zelienople, PA. Registration will start at 9 am. Our opening ceremony will begin at 10 am and we will start walking the trail immediately after. You're only required to do 1 lap (3 laps = 5K) but you're more than welcome to continue on if you'd like to do a 5K. We will have a raffle basket drawing and check presentation ceremony once everyone has finished their walk!
