ACADEMI supports the 2013 Annual Walk for Hunger

July 17, 2013

On October 13th, 2013, the Food Bank of Albemarle is holding its Annual Walk for Hunger Fundraiser. In the Northeastern region of North Carolina, hunger affects 1 out of 5 households or almost 20% of the people in the region. Every dollar raised will provide approximately 5 pounds of food. If the Food Bank reaches their goal of $40,000, they will be able to provide an additional 183,000 meals to families who rely on emergency soup kitchens and pantries to survive.

The Food Bank does not charge a registration fee for participants, but asks for pledges from friends and families.
