Register for the Hunger Walk

There are numerous organizations dedicated to addressing the problem of food insecurity in the community, including Morton Memorial Church and the Community Action Committee. Through a joint effort in the third annual Hunger Walk, the Monteagle Sewanee Rotary hopes to raise awareness about these hunger issues as well as raise money to help end them.
To best way to support The Hunger Walk is to be a community partner through sponsorships. By donating $250, businesses and individuals can become a partner and have their logo/name featured on Hunger Walk posters and participant T-shirts.
Another way to help out is to walk showing your support. Registration is free for children under 12, $10 for students and $20 for adults. Register to walk at
Registration may also be completed on the day of the walk, Saturday, Sept. 2, at Angel Park in Sewanee. Registration begins at 8 a.m. with the walk starting at 9 a.m. Each walker will receive a T-shirt and a “Hunger is not a Game” sticker.
