LINCOLNTON, N.C.––The annual Hunger Walk draws nigh.

On Sunday, Oct. 22, local folks will fill the streets of downtown Lincolnton to march to help alleviate hunger, according to Mitzi Williams. The executive director of Christian Ministry of Lincoln County, Williams said Thursday that the organization encourages as many members of the public as possible to come out and walk for this worthy cause.

“Please come stroll around Lincolnton and help the hungry!” she said. “Start collecting money now! Let people know you are going to support the ministry. If needed, forms and envelopes to track and keep your donations are available at the ministry.

“For the past several years,” she continued, “the funds raised have been used to purchase meals for recipients on the LINC Meals program. This past year, it paid for 10 people who cannot prepare a hot meal by themselves and do not have anyone to do it for them. These are people who cannot afford to pay the $4.20 per meal. Do you have Sunday afternoon free? Can you take a leisurely walk around Main Street? It doesn’t matter how far you walk. Can you ask your family, friends and neighbors for a couple of dollars to help feed people?”

Williams noted that there would also be a carnival with the Hunger Walk, starting at 1:30 p.m. Games and hotdogs will be featured. Registration for the walk is at 2:30 p.m., and the walk itself begins at 3 p.m.

“This is all it takes to help fight hunger in our community!” she added. 

Talking of food, in other news, Williams noted that the ministry’s soup kitchen needs yams and cream of chicken soup. And the food pantry needs soup, rice, canned beans and canned meats. Relatedly, bags, in both the paper and plastic varieties, are needed as well.

And the LINC Home Meals delivery program is in need of both drivers and team co-ordinators. Send your e-mail queries about this to
