Thomas’ Walk Against Hunger

The Thomas’ Walk Against Hunger will be held on Saturday April 9, 2016 and will start at the Philadelphia Art Museum. This beautiful and scenic 5k course is right along the river and the perfect setting for a walk. You can register to walk online here. The walk is FREE to all registrants and the walk check in is at 8am. The walk will begin at approximately 9:30am.

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 for more information or stop by your local ACME store to make a donation to the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger.

This walk also jump starts our Kicking Hunger campaign in which we partner with the Philadelphia Eagles to raise food donations for those in need. 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. This campaign will run in stores until May 5th.



More about the Coalition Against Hunger Their Mission: Founded in 1996, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger strives to build a community where all people have the food they need to lead healthy lives. The Coalition connects people with food assistance programs and nutrition education; provides resources to a network of food pantries; and educates the public and policymakers about responsible solutions that prevent people from going hungry.
