Giving Back: 2013 Hunger Walk

We were very proud to be part of the Hunger Walk last weekend. Ping made an appearance and was able to make a few more smiles during this fun-filled day.
The Hunger Walk/Run, an annual 5K walk and "fun run" that began in 1984, is a project of the Atlanta Community Food Bank that unites our community to raise awareness and critical funds for local hunger relief. Proceeds from the event benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank and other local nonprofit organizations that support food pantries, community kitchens, shelters and other programs for people in need of food assistance.

Did you know:
16.9 percent of the people living in the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s service area in metro Atlanta and north Georgia are food insecure, meaning that they don’t always know where they will find their next meal.
• More than one in every four Georgia children – 28.3% of our children – lives in a food insecure households. This is up from 27.9% last year. The USDA defines food insecurity as the lack of access to adequate food resulting from the lack of money and other resources.

We received a great thank you note from the ACFB decorated by Stella, age 7.
