Thanksgiving 5k Walk/Run to Feed the Hungry on Nov. 23


Thursday, November 14th, 2013
Issue 46, Volume 17.


FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Food Pantry has begun preparations for one of its most important fundraisers of the year, the Thanksgiving 5k Walk/Run to Feed the Hungry.

In 2006, the local food pantry started the tradition of asking community members to walk or run together, and find sponsors who donate money to support them, in an effort to raise funds to provide food for the needy in the greater Fallbrook area. Each year groups and individuals of all ages come together for this great event.

The Thanksgiving tradition of Run to Feed the Hungry began in 1994 in Sacramento. The growing popularity of the event is related to the notion that as society gives thanks for their own blessings at Thanksgiving, they should also reach out Advertisement

to help those who are in need.

Everyone can participate, either by walking and collecting donations from supporters, by supporting someone else to run or walk for them at the event, or by mailing a check to the Fallbrook Food Pantry at P.O. Box 3008, Fallbrook, Calif. 92088.

Sponsor forms will be distributed to churches, at Caffé Primo, the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce or can be picked up at the Fallbrook Food Pantry, 1042 S. Mission Rd.

Donations collected will be turned in prior to the race, at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23, at the food pantry. Water, coffee, fresh fruit, and rolls will be served after completing the walk.

For more information, call Jean Dooley at (760) 728-5682 or the food pantry at (760) 728-7608.
