In the last year CORA served 5242 needy Chatham County families with one week’s supply of food. This past Summer CORA, along with eighteen partner agencies, conducted the SNACK! Program (Summer Nutritional Assistance for Chatham Kids) for 1160 children. Your financial support of the Hunger Walk ensures that these programs will continue, and that we will be able to meet our county’s need for food assistance.
2017 Chatham Hunger Walk Details:
We especially need your help this year as we expect to distribute enough food to feed more than 20,000 people for a week! You can help us to make sure we have the funds we need to feed everyone who comes to us for help.Participants can walk a 1-mile or 5K route that includes the CCCC campus trail. The 5K takes walkers to downtown and the First Sunday Street Fair before returning to the library. Both routes end at the Chili Cook Off event at the Pittsboro Senior Center.
Forming a Team with family, friends, colleagues, sports buddies, students from your school, members of your club or church can greatly increase your impact in the fight against Hunger in Chatham County. CORA has special materials to help make your team a success. DOWNLOAD our Hunger Walk Team Packet materials here:
CORA will give a $50 gift card to the Walker who gets the most people to sponsor them. The sponsorship amount needs to be at least $10.00 to count. CORA will also give a $50 gift card to the Walker who collects the most total donations (dollars).
We encourage everyone to pre-register. This will allow us to better plan for snacks and water for the event. You can also reserve an event t-shirt in the size of your choice! Event bandanas will also be available for you and/or your four legged friends!
