The Hunger Walk
There's still time to support The Healing Center by donating to the Hunger Walk!
The 17th Annual Hunger Walk is 100% virtual, but the support you provide is 100% real. Every dollar raised brings real help and hope to people who need it.
TWO WAYS TO DONATE:

A successful Hunger Walk provides needed items for our pantry for an entire year. Your $25 donation provides over 60 meals for guests at The Healing Center.
Each year, the Healing Center participates in only one fundraiser: the Annual Freestore Foodbank Hunger Walk & 5K Run.
Did you know? The Healing Center serves more than 3,000 children, senior citizens and adults each month, so the Hunger Walk is critical to our service to the community.
Watch this brief video about how the Hunger Walk is more effective for buying groceries than shopping at the grocery store:
How does my registration provide 60 meals?
By registering for the Healing Center's Hunger Walk Team, you can provide over 60 meals to guests at the Healing Center!
How does the Freestore Foodbank provide SO much food for my registration?
There are very generous donors who donate product on a large scale, which allows the Freestore Foodbank to provide inventory for other agencies.
The Freestore Foodbank purchases items in such high quantities that they are able to receive bulk discounts.
How do I do a virtual walk?
On Monday, May 25, simply get up off your couch and go walk in your neighborhood! Be sure to take a photo and post it to Instagram with #CincyHungerWalk #vineyardcincinati.
Do I have to walk?
Nope! But your registration fee still provides 60 meals!
When and where can I get a t-shirt?
For anyone who registered with $25 or more, we will have a drive-thru t-shirt pick-up on Friday, May 22 from 4 to 6 pm. We only ordered 1,000 shirts and when they're gone, they're gone. We will not be setting any aside for folks for later, so if you want one, better hit that drive-thru.
Print a racing bib at home!
Print this bib so you can walk the virtual race in official style!
