5K Walk for Hunger
9:00AM @ Southern State Community College
Sponsored by: Samaritan Outreach Services, Hillsboro First UMC, Our Daily Bread, Highland County Homeless Shelter and Highland County Community Action
All proceeds benefit Highland County Emergency Food Programs
One Walker = $20 = 100 pounds of food = 78 meals = $0.25 per meal. One person can make a difference!
Last Year HCCAO provided meals to 3366 unduplicated people through the emergency food pantry. Many of these people required multiple visits to the food pantry to meet their nutritional needs. HCCAO purchased more than 93,000 pounds of food from the freestore food bank and provided meals to hungry families at $0.14 per meal. As the needs rise, costs rise, and resources decrease, it will become more difficult to meet these needs for families. Please help HCCAO to help families right here in our community.
