Hunger Walk: Get neighborhood history lessons while helping poor
Jazz and blues musicians will provide roadside inspiration for participants in the Mid-South Hunger Walk, a fundraiser for local and international food programs. The walk will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22. Last year, students helped raise $15,000.
Buses running at 15-minute intervals will pick up walkers from 1 to 2 p.m. at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel and take them to the walk's starting and ending point at St. James United Methodist Church, 4611 S. Ellis Ave. Return bus service will run from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
An annotated guide for walkers will provide historical information about neighborhoods and streets on the route. The event will also include visits to local churches and community centers.
The walk is sponsored by the Hyde Park and Kenwood Interfaith Council, Partners in Community Development and numerous local service organizations.
