Walk. Give. Change the world.
Our community believes in ending hunger. And, in 2020, we will continue to fight against the new challenges of disease and disaster that leave people hungry. Join with us in raising funds to help neighbors near and far get the meals they need this year.
Walkers have reported $385 in online and offline gifts!

In the past 24 years, we have raised just over $69,200 to feed hungry people in Columbia - we know that our 2020 Walk will add to that total and have even greater impact.
We are planning for our 2020 WALK in a spirit of hope for the future, not yet knowing if an in-person WALK at the new ‘Ag Park’ (Clary-Shy Community Park) on W. Ash will be possible by late September. But there will be a Walk, whether we “walk together” or create ways to “walk together apart”.
The needs of our brothers and sisters here in Columbia and served by Church World Service around the world continue regardless of the COVID-19 virus status. The 4 food programs in Columbia who will receive 2020 grants are:
1) Loaves & Fishes Soup Kitchen serves nightly meals for low income and houseless persons at Wilkes Blvd United Methodist Church. Expenses have increased due to the covid virus and need to make the meals carryout only on the parking lot: carry-out containers, additional disposable paper goods and ‘sack lunch’ meal items for evenings when volunteers are not available to prepare a meal.
2) Russell Chapel Community Food Pantry has instituted a ‘drive-thru’ pantry operation to provide needed food to their mid-city clients as safely as possible.
3) Destiny Worship Center Food Pantry has gone beyond supplying emergency food for their immediate northeast Columbia neighborhood, now also focusing on the needs of children at Coyote Hill Christian Children’s Home.
4) Fifth Street Christian Church provides emergency food supplies for families in need and a monthly community meal at the church with home delivery to those who cannot get to the church.
Show the world that Columbia is "better together in our 25th year". Join us! Register your Team! Use the resources for creative fundraising! Have fun! Step out once again.

Together, we can help end hunger in our community and around the world.
