04/29/2019- Put on your walking shoes and help end food insecurity in the area. NEWCAP’s second annual Hike for Hunger takes place this Saturday, May 4th, beginning at Marinette’s City Park. This two-mile walk aims to raise awareness about food insecurity and provide aid to those who may not know where their next meal is coming from. Deb Barlament is NEWCAP’s Deputy CEO. She says participants are asked to raise funds or make a food donation to support the agency’s food pantry here in Marinette.
The day doesn’t end when the walk does. Barlament says NEWCAP has a full day of activities planned.
Registration for the Hike for Hunger opens at 9:00 AM and the walk starts at 10:00. Pre-registration can also be completed on NEWCAP’s website by searching for the Hike for Hunger under their events tab.
