Walk Against Hunger

The St. Peter’s Food Cupboard provides groceries to an average of 240 families each week both at 313 Pine Street and at our Mobile Cupboard locations in North and South Philly. Some of our Cupboard’s expenses are funded by grants, but contributions from our community supporters make up a significant portion of our budget. One of two annual fundraisers each year is the Walk Against Hunger each spring. You can help support the Cupboard by walking, by donating, or by spreading word.
This year’s Walk will take place on Saturday, April 21, on the track inside the Lincoln Financial Field stadium. St. Peter’s Food Cupboard will have a small team of walkers who will be walking on behalf of all of us. You can support the Food Cupboard directly by sponsoring our team and making a donation online. Simply follow the link and click the red “Donate” button to donate directly to the St. Peter’s Food Cupboard Team.
If you want to do more and are interesting in joining the team of walkers, you can register online here. From this site, click the red “Join Our Team” button and follow the prompts to create an account. If you plan to walk, or need help with the registration process, please let me know!
Lastly, even if you aren’t able to donate or walk, what will help the most is spreading the word. If the Food Cupboard is as important to you as it is to me, you probably already tell people about the work we do. Now is your chance to multiply the impact. You can forward the fundraising link (copied in full below) with your friends and family, share it through social media, or even pick up printed posters with the information. Every dollar counts, and if we can each raise $10 for the Food Cupboard from 5 friends, coworkers, neighbors, or other people in our lives, we will easily reach our goal by April 21st.
Please help us continue to feed every person in need who comes to our doors!
