Stroehmann Walk + Run Against Hunger

  The Stroehmann Walk Against Hunger will be held on Saturday April 11, 2015 and will start at the Philadelphia Art Museum. This beautiful and scenic 5k course along the river could be completed either by walk or run. You can register to walk or run online at here. There is a registration fee of $30 ($35 on race day) to run but it’s FREE to walk.

The walk was started to raise hunger awareness. Hunger affects a lot of people all over the country but also right in our neighborhoods. Did you know that about 1 in 4 people in Philadelphia are in need of food and struggle with hunger? You can help though. Visit www.hungerwalk.org for more information or stop by your local ACME store to make a donation to the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger. You can purchase a $10 bag of groceries in store or at our booth at the Hunger Walk. Those groceries will be donated to the Coalition Against Hunger.  You can also help by purchasing Stroehmann bread from now through April 9th. 10 cents from each purchase will also go towards the Coalition.
