Due to COVID-19 — We strongly encourage everyone at Hunger Hike this year to wear a mask. Together we can help protect the most vulnerable among us.
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. 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
