    Event Description:
    The 2018 Monadnock Hunger Walk involves many area churches, civic groups and student organizations and will take place on May 5 in Peterborough This year’s Walk will begin at the Peterborough Unitarian Universalist Church on Main Street in Peterborough, and then follow a 3-mile section of the Rail Trail in Peterborough. Teams of walkers are challenged to collect sponsor donation checks that are written out to the local food pantry of the sponsor’s choice. Walkers collect the donation checks and turn them in on the morning of the walk. Local food pantries get much-needed support, walkers get exercise and have a good time with friends, and folks in need of the pantries’ goods get a boost! This is “supporting local” at its finest. The Monadnock Hunger Walk raised well over $6,000 last year. All funds went to food pantries in Peterborough, Jaffrey, Troy, Greenfield, Antrim, Rindge, Keene and to the New Hampshire Food Bank in Manchester. This year the goal is to double that amount.
