CANCELLED: Hunger Walk Run 2020

March 15 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Fundraising will continue online through March 31! Donate Online

Based on continued monitoring and the recommendations by public officials, the Atlanta Community Food Bank will be cancelling our annual Hunger Walk Run that was scheduled to take place this Sunday due to the spreading COVID-19 virus

HWR 2020 Will Be a Virtual Fundraiser

Right now, food pantries and community kitchens are preparing for how we will respond to the growing implications of this public health threat. As businesses and school systems change their operations, there is a ripple effect for the families and seniors already facing hunger. The community is counting on us to be ready to respond to this emergency.
For that reason, we are taking the Hunger Walk Run online! While we won’t be together in person, we can be together in spirit, showing the strength of our community and the passion we have to end hunger. Here’s how you can join in:
  1. Please continue fundraising and consider a special ask to your network to support our efforts in this time of uncertainty. A donation of $25 will help provide 100 meals and keep the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s essential services going. Share your personal page or use our social tools to get the message out.
  2. Take a selfie while walking in your neighborhood, rocking your treadmill, or spinning on your bike this weekend! Help us keep the energy of the Hunger Walk Run going by posting your photo to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter – tag @ACFB and @ECFimpact and use the hashtags #HWR2020 and #ECFimpact.

Eucharist Service

With the cancellation of the Hunger Walk Run event, the ecumenical Eucharist planned for Sunday morning at the Georgia World Congress Center has also been cancelled.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. And we look forward to when we can once again join together for this annual tradition. Thank you for your support of the work that the Episcopal Community Foundation for Middle and North Georgia does to fight hunger in our Diocese.

If you have any questions, please contact ECF’s Executive Director Lindsey Hardegree at LHardegree@episcopalatlanta.org or 404.601.5362.
