Hike to End Hunger
to support the work of Rio Grande Food Project
Saturday, October 23rd
Boxing Bear Brewing Company
10200 Corrales Road, off Alameda
Hike starts at 9:00am!
It has been two years since we have gathered in-person on a beautiful fall day with our friends, families, volunteers, sponsors, partners and supporters to raise awareness and the funds necessary to reduce hunger in our community!
And we are offering the virtual option once again!
We have LOTS of ways to support hunger relief. Check out our Hike to End Hunger site for all Hike details and ways to help, including starting a FUNdraiser,
becoming a Sponsor, sharing a photo, buying a tee.
You don't hike, you say?
Simply Donate to support the campaign!
When $1 = 5 meals for a child, adult or senior struggling with hunger,it is so easy to support reducing hunger.
Can't make it to the event because you'll be on vacation?
Support reducing hunger from anywhere!
Take a selfie and post on social media.
Tag us on Facebook (@rgfp.org) and/or
Use #hiketoendhunger and #hiketoendhungerabq hashtags.Or email us your pics so we can share them!
Where can I buy a t-shirt?
Buy one here! Tees are Bella+Canvas.
Women's are SLIM fit, so size up or buy Men's size for a roomier fit.
Pick up your awesome tee AT THE EVENT or
BEFORE October 23rd any Wednesday or Friday
600 Coors Blvd. NW, Albuquerque, NM
What if we hit the Hike goal? Hunger knows no limits.
It impacts every age, every race, every ethnicity.
It affects every aspect of a community when some of its members cannot provide for their basic needs.
At Rio Grande Food Project, we believe EVERYONE deserves enough quality food to live a healthy life.
So let's surpass our Hike goal so RGFP can continue
to reduce hunger all year long.
The more awareness we raise about our community's hunger crisis,
the more we can do together to help.
