Hunger Walk

Submitted by cdradmin on Mon, 08/01/2022

Hunger Walk was started in 2012 to raise community awareness about food insecurity in Rockcastle County, where the Grateful Bread Food Pantry is located. Our Annual Hunger Walk takes place each year on the third Thursday of September.

The mission of Hunger Walk is to collect food items and funds to help CAP’s food pantry network continue to fight hunger and feed hope in Appalachia. CAP’s food pantries include Grateful Bread Food Pantry in Rockcastle County; Eagle Food Pantry in McCreary County; and our partner pantry, Water Into Wine, in Magoffin County.

Food Goal: 25,000 pounds of nonperishable food items

Funds Goal: $75,000
