"PUSH AGAINST HUNGER" Inaugural Hunger Awareness Walk
September 19 @ 10:00 a.m.
Captain Oshawa, Oshawa and Whitby Council members and representatives of Fire, Ambulance and Durham Regional Police Services will push shopping carts from Oshawa City Hall, west along Bond Street and Highway 2 to the Whitby Chamber of Commerce to raise awareness of hunger in our community.
The walk will commence at the Oshawa City Hall with Mayor Henry reading the proclamation to officially recognized National Hunger Awareness Week.
We invite the residents and businesses of Durham Region to join our fight against hunger.
Please bring your non-perishable food items to help fill the carts to:
- The 10:00 a.m. launch @ Oshawa City Hall
- Meet the procession enroute
- The 2:30 event closing ceremony
Feed the Need in Durham provides perishable as well as non-perishable food. Grocery chains make their excess food available to us at distribution centres enabling us to help marginalized people in Durham benefit from eating a variety of healthy and nourishing foods including fresh vegetables, fruits, eggs, and milk.
If you would like to join us in the fight against hunger, please consider donating food, making a monetary donation, or volunteering your time.
