Hearts for Hunger 5K Fun Run/Walk June 1st, 2013

Harnessing Hunger, One Backpack at a Time


The Justice and Witness Committee (Missions and Outreach) is hosting a 5K & 1K Fun Run/Walk on June 1st as a fundraiser to benefit the Vermont Foodbanks Backpack Program. This nationally recognized program of Feeding America is designed to meet the needs of hungry children at times when other resources, like school breakfast and lunch, are not available, such as weekends and school vacations. For more information on this program, I encourage you to visit:


The mission of the Vermont Foodbank is to gather and share quality food and nurture partnerships so that no one in Vermont will go hungry. This mission aligns with our committees desire to help alleviate hunger, both locally and worldwide.


The Statistics:

12.8% percent of Vermonts residents are food insecure

34,000 households in the state are at risk of hunger

Over 50 million Americans face hunger in the US, with nearly 17 million being children

1 in 6 Americans lives in a household that worries about where they will get their next meal


Because of the Backpack Program:

700 youth receive food packs each week

In a year, the VT Foodbank will package nearly 20,000 bags, or 63,000 pounds of food for children in need
