Join the Amherst Survival Center for our first virtual Hike for Hunger Challenge! During this time of social distancing, the Hike for Hunger presents an opportunity for you to be outside and active while making sure our community has access to nutritious food. Set your personal goal, and throughout the month of November, head out on the trails wherever and whenever you’d like – with your kids, your friends, or your furry friends – and share your adventures with us.
Your entry fee and all the funds you raise will go directly to our COVID-19 Hunger Response Fund, making sure everyone in our community has access to the food they need for their families. Since March, we have more than doubled the number of meals we serve, now up to 250 lunches each day. We have increased Food Pantry allocations and launched a new grocery delivery program that has grown to almost 1,000 people per month.As we know, the pandemic and its economic fallout are far from over. With your support, we will continue to grow our programs to meet the need in our community.
