KC Hunger Run 2013

Please join on Saturday, October 12 in a 5K Run (sanctioned and timed) plus a Family Fun Walk in beautiful Unity Village. A family friendly event to benefit hunger relief and culinary education in the Greater Kansas City Community.

The event benefits Episcopal Community Services, including their “Healthy Food for the Hungry” program. Episcopal Community Services provided more than One Million Meals for the hungry in our communities in each of the past three years.

But what is “Healthy Food for the Hungry”? Hungry people and families in our communities also often suffer from nutrition related chronic diseases – most notably diabetes and hypertension. It is our continuing goal to decrease the reliance on processed shelf-stable canned and boxed food in hunger relief, and increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables and better protein sources. The result takes us beyond feeding the hungry to fostering healthy eating, better nutrition and improved health for those most in need in our communities.
