There are more than 74,000 food insecure individuals in DuPage County, almost half of which do not qualify for government assistance. Please join us in this chip-timed, family-friendly 5K run/walk to feed our hungry neighbors!
Since 1999, Neighborhood Food Pantries has provided food security to our neighbors in need, as well as monetary assistance for housing, utilities, medical care/prescriptions, etc. Funds raised from this 5K event will be used to help us reach our 2017 goal to provide over 2 million meals.
