"Hunger Walk provides what we need from the Freestore Foodbank. It provides us with quality food and a chance to get the word out that we’re working with other agencies to try to eliminate hunger in our community."
- Deacon Tom Runge, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Newport
"We all enjoy walking. It's fun to do and having the money raised from Hunger Walk is so beneficial. It's really a blanket of security to know that it is there. I honestly don't think we could keep this pantry open and running without it."
- Diane Arnold, Corpus Christi Food Pantry in Springfield Township
