Sign up to help end hunger in the community on March 10 with virtual and in-person events

The Atlanta Community Food Bank is inviting the community to take steps together to fight local hunger. The 40th anniversary Hunger Walk Run is scheduled for Sunday, March 10, 2024, and is a hybrid event offering in-person and virtual participation. This year, Laila Ali, Former World Champion Boxer and CEO of Laila Ali Lifestyle, will be in attendance to support the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s mission to fight hunger by engaging, educating and empowering our community.

The in-person event will occur from 12-4 pm at The Home Depot Backyard – 1 Backyard Way, Atlanta, GA 30313. Virtual supporters may join any time on March 10. Online registration is now open and available through 12 pm on March 8, 2024.

“We are thrilled to kick off this year’s Hunger Walk Run that now spans four decades,” said Kyle Waide, President & CEO of the Atlanta Community Food Bank. “The event initially started to help bring various faith communities together and has expanded over the years to unite people of all walks of life and across ages to raise awareness and critical funds for local hunger relief. It’s such an honor to offer this amazing event that enables us to make significant strides in our fight against hunger.”

Every registration makes a significant impact. Each person who registers to walk is helping provide 90 meals, and each runner is helping provide 120 meals for those in need. Throughout the history of the Hunger Walk Run, more than $14.5 million has been raised for hunger relief.

The rates for online registration are $30 for walkers, $40 for runners, $25 for virtual participants who pick up their shirts, and $32 for virtual participants who wish to have their shirts mailed to them. Walk-up registration will also be available at a higher rate.

The 5K event is open to individuals of all ages and abilities. Participants may join as an individual, family, group, or team. In addition to the Walk Run, a family-friendly event livens up the day and features live music, food vendors, warm-ups, and more.

Participants may stay up-to-date on the events by downloading the Hunger Walk Run app. The app is free and may be used on iPhone and Android devices. For more information about the Hunger Walk Run, email hungerwalk@acfb.org or call (404) 419-1723.
