Through the Walk for Hunger, the oldest continual pledge walk in the country, they provide millions of dollars each year in privately donated funds to more than 430 emergency food programs in 125 communities statewide. They also champion programs that provide food to families in neighborhood settings such as schools, after-school programs, summer programs, community health centers, hospitals, and elder home care facilities — making hunger relief a normal part of their day.
