Micro Walks

Don’t feel ready to take part in a large outdoor event?  No Problem!  We’ll also have several micro-walks throughout Greater Lafayette.

Each walk will take place at a local park or nature area and will be hosted by a Hunger Hike volunteer.  Stripped of all the music or food trucks, they provide a fun, socially distanced way to share in the spirit of the day with your fellow Hikers.

All walks start at 2:00 pm sharp!  Spaces are limited so sign up early.

T-Shirts & More

The average cotton t-shirt takes more than 700 gallons of water to produce and creates more than 30 pounds of carbon.  That’s a huge environmental cost, and at the end of each Hunger Hike we usually have boxes of them left over, just going to waste.  So in an effort to be better stewards of our planet, our giveaways are going to look a little different this year.

Anyone who makes a donation can now get a Hunger Hike table tent.  

  • This beautiful, high quality table tent features a brief interfaith ritual that you and your family can use throughout the year as a way to remember where your food comes from and why Hunger Hike is so important.
  • Table tents will be distributed to all donors (while supplies last) at both Riehle Plaza and all Micro Walk sites.  

Still want a Hunger Hike t-shirt?  No problem.  While we may not be placing a mass order for every donor and volunteer, our t-shirts are still available for purchase.  

  • Cost: $6 ($8 for XXL)
  • You can buy them right on the donation form.
  • Deadline is September 9th!!
  • All t-shirts must be ordered in advance.

Both T-shirts and Table Tents can be picked up on September 19th at either Riehle Plaza or any of the Micro Walk sites.      

Plus anyone who raises at least $250 can get a Hunger Hike Hero yard sign!


We’ll need plenty of help on Sunday the 19th to make Hunger Hike a success.  Have a little extra time?  Why not lend a hand?

There are lots of tasks to choose from.  We need people to:

  • Set Up
  • Take donations
  • Hand out T-shirts and Table Tents
  • Distribute Bottled Water and Fruit
  • Help with Clean Up
