Maine CUs’ Ending Hunger Walking Tour
Founded in 2002, the Maine CUs' Ending Hunger Walking Tour is a partnership between Maine's credit unions and Brenda Davis, Executive Director of Crossroads, a hunger organization serving eastern Maine, and a leading hunger advocate in Maine, to raise awareness and funds for ending hunger in Maine.
2013 Tour Recap:
The 2013 Tour marked the 12th annual event. The record-setting journey began on October 25 in Augusta, and ended on Wednesday, December 4th in Bangor. The 2013 Walk visited 80 communities, the most ever, and contribute to food pantries in each community. The contributions distributed through the Walk enabled food pantries to collectively purchase nearly $500,000 worth of food to help those in need.
