Come October, head out on the trails wherever and whenever you’d like – with your family, your friends, or your furry friends – and share your adventures. Proceeds from Hike for Hunger go directly to our food and nutrition programs, reaching more than 7,000 people annually. Registration is $25 and includes a 2021 Hike for Hunger t-shirt.
