Maine CUs’ Ending Hunger Walking and Awareness Tour
Founded in 2002, the Maine CUs' Ending Hunger Walking Tour is a partnership between Maine's credit unions and Brenda Davis, long-time ending hunger advocate in Maine and the Executive Director of BBC Opportunity Center, a hunger organization serving eastern Maine, to raise awareness and funds for ending hunger in Maine.
Quite a 'feet'! The 2017 Tour was the largest ever. From October 27 - November 28, the Tour visited 91 communities and 98 CU locations. A food pantry in each community received a contribution.
