Walk to End Hunger and Help Our Neighbors in Need

Hunger Walk with Fourth Presbyterian Church             
Put on your walking shoes and join us on Saturday, June 25 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) Hunger Walk!
       Participation in this 5K walk helps our Meals Ministry and the Chicago Lights Elam Davies Social Service Center obtain much-needed food items at negligible costs using GCFD credits.
       That in turn makes it possible for us to each week serve two hot meals and offer bag lunches to our neighbors in need as well as provide food through the Social Service Center’s Consumer Choice Food Pantry.
       Please consider making an online pledge to support our team or signing up on our team page to walk with us (enter code A00294 to waive the registration fee). Together we can help end hunger in our community!
