What will I need the day of the event?

Please bring your donations in your envelope with your name and amount raised. Be sure to identify how much you have raised online and how much is collected in your envelope. Don't forget to bring your own reusable water bottle or plastic bottle as water will be available.

Is there a minimum donation amount?

There is no minimum amount for those interested in participating. T-shirts are available for those who have raised $100 and $50 for participants under the age of 18. 

Why should I be a part of the Hunger Walk?

Your participation in the Hunger Walk will help the Food Bank Coalition raise funds and spread awareness of our mission to help thousands of individuals and their struggling families receive the nutritious food that they could not otherwise afford.

What if the weather conditions are not pleasant?

The walk will be held rain or shine, so wear weather appropriate clothing. 

How long is the walk?

The walk is from St. Timothy's Church in Morro Bay to the scenic Morro Rock. It is approximately 1 mile which you can complete at your own comfortable pace. 

Will everyone be walking together or individually?

Everyone will start at the same time, but walkers will spread out according to their pace. There will be no "stopping of traffic" and all pedestrian laws will be obeyed.
