ST. VINCENT DE PAUL, MIDDLETOWN RECRUITING TEAMS FOR FOODSHARE WALK AGAINST HUNGER
de Paul Middletown is recruiting residents in the Greater Middletown area to
participate in the 34th Annual Walk Against Hunger, the largest anti-hunger
fundraising event in Connecticut. The event is hosted by Foodshare, the
regional food bank, and St. Vincent de Paul Middletown participates each year
to raise funds for their programs.
event will take place on Sunday May 7th, 2017 at Liam E. McGee
Memorial Park (140 Garden Street, Hartford). Free event parking is provided at
The Hartford Insurance lot (690 Asylum Avenue). Walkers should arrive by 1:00
pm on May 7th for check-in and pre-Walk entertainment. The 2.5-mile walk
steps off, rain or shine, at 2:00 pm.
several ways to get involved: become a team captain and form a team – ask your
friends, family, coworkers and neighbors to walk with you – or join our St.
Vincent de Paul Middletown team. If you can’t join us on May 7th, consider

de Paul Middletown’s Soup Kitchen and Amazing Grace Food Pantry continue to
experience unprecedented demand for nutritious food, providing approximately
340,000 meals to residents in the Middletown area last year. The Walk Against
Hunger takes place at an important time of year. The summer months are the most
challenging for people with food insecurity, as the need for food rises with
the summer school recess and that is when donations typically decline. The Walk
Against Hunger is the agency’s largest annual fundraiser - last year over 100
people participated in the Walk Against Hunger on behalf of St. Vincent de Paul
Middletown and raised over $34,000 for the agency and its programs.
more about the Walk Against Hunger, visit www.svdmiddletown.org. Select St. Vincent de Paul Middletown as the benefiting program during
registration, and the funds you raise will directly benefit the Soup Kitchen
and Amazing Grace Food Pantry. If you have any questions or would like help
with the registration process, please contact Walk Coordinator Jessica Fazzino
