The Hunger Walk Run is an annual 5K walk and “fun run” that began in 1984 . It is an event of the Atlanta Community Food Bank that unites our community to raise awareness and critical funds for local hunger relief.  Proceeds from the event benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank, SVdP Georgia and other local nonprofit organizations that support food pantries, community kitchens, shelters and other programs for people in need of food assistance. SVdP Georgia recruits participants and receives a percentage of the funds raised to support our direct hunger relief programs.  

In its 35 years, the Hunger Walk Run has raised over $10 million for hunger relief – enough to help provide 40 million meals!

Whether you choose to walk or run, you’ll join thousands of participants coming together to support our neighbors in need and celebrate achievements already made in the fight against hunger. The family-friendly, festival atmosphere at Home Depot Backyard includes food trucks, games, educational activities, live entertainment and more!

In the past more than 8,000 participants came together to raise over 1 million dollars to combat hunger in our community!  This year, you can help make a real difference in the lives of your fellow Georgians by helping us exceed our fundraising goals. Take the next step this spring and join us!  Check back for us for more details as they become available.
