Walk Against Hunger

Frequently Asked Questions


Is there a registration fee on the day of the Walk Against Hunger? 

There is no cost to participate in the Walk Against Hunger. All walkers are encouraged to raise at least $40 which is equivalent to 80 meals for your neighbors in need.

How does Connecticut Foodshare use the funds raised at the Walk?

Funds raised from the walk support the food bank and our partners programs who serve the estimated 545,000 people in Connecticut who struggle with hunger. Last year, tens of thousands of dollars raised at the Walk was distributed to the participating benefiting agencies. The funds also support long-term efforts to increase access to healthy food and address the underlying issues that contribute to hunger. In supporting this event, you help us continue this important work.

How long is the Walk?

The Walk is 1.5 miles, starting and ending at Dunkin' Donuts Park. A map of the walk route is available at www.ctfoodshare.org/walk-route.

Do I have to be a part of a team? 

No! You have the option to register as part of a team or as an individual walker.

How do I communicate to my team?

You must be the Team Captain to communicate with your team members through email. Once you are logged in to your account, go to Manage My Page: Manage Your Team: Email Your Teammates. This will allow you to select which teammates you wish to reach out to.
