Access Walk for Good Food
The Access Walk for Good Food, formerly the Hunger Walk, is an annual 5k walk through downtown Grand Rapids. The Walk takes place this year at Park Church in Downtown Grand Rapids. Kick off and registration begins at 1:30pm and the Walk begins at 2:30pm.
We enlist the people in our community to raise awareness and financial support for 20 local and international nonprofits. The work of the recipient organizations fall under our Good Food Systems values and ranges from community gardening projects, food systems policy work, nutrition programs, food pantries and gleaning programs, to food justice and community development initiatives. These organizations are not only meeting immediate needs, but are working to create a just, healthy, and sustainable food system. In the past 40 years, the Walk has raised over $6 million for dozens of local and international non-profit organizations. Our Goal this year is to have over 1,000 walkers and raise over $110,000!
Will you walk to help promote a healthy and just food system for all?
