Give Back Before Giving Thanks: Walk to End Hunger 2013

This holiday season, thousands of Minnesota families will rely on their local food shelf for a simple holiday meal. You can directly help those in need by joining Second Harvest Heartland for this year’s Walk to End Hunger at the Mall of America on Thanksgiving morning.

The Walk to End Hunger, a family-friendly 5K fun walk, presented by the Twin Cities Hunger Initiative, is a collaboration of hunger relief agencies to raise awareness and funds to end hunger in the Twin Cities and gather thousands of nonperishable food items for local hunger relief organizations, including Second Harvest Heartland.

Why walk:

  • Kids participate for free!

  • NEW this year, break a sweat on the second level of the mall with power walking and other fitness activities.

  • Santa will be there posing for photos.

  • Some rides at the mall will be open for free along with other fun activities for the family.

There are many ways to participate in the walk: join team Second Harvest Heartland, start your own team, make a donation or volunteer. Visit to join us today!

However you choose to participate, you will help provide more food to those who are hungry in our community this holiday season! For more information, visit the Walk to End Hunger website or call 651.789.9842. Hope to see you there!
