The 30th annual CHOW Hunger Walk will be held at Binghamton University on Sunday, October 21 beginning at 2 PM.  Registration gets underway at 1 PM.  The Broome County Council of Churches and the  Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW) face increasing demands for food to help feed the hungry in our area.

The Hunger Walk takes place on the BU campus over a 2.5 mile route and begins behind East Gym.  After the Walk all participants are invited to stay and enjoy refreshments, food and entertainment.

Deacon Ed Blaine, speaking on WNBF  First News with Roger Neel this morning said  “with the increasing demand for food that CHOW needs to respond to in these especially difficult economic times, we are counting on the Broome County community to make this year’s Hunger Walk the most successful ever.  Proceeds from the Walk are used to purchase food for the upcoming winter months when demand for food is high.”

Pledge envelopes are available at many area churches as well as the Council of Churches office at 3 Otsiningo Street on Binghamton’s south side.  Walkers are asked to obtain pledges and cash and then return what is collected when they come to the Walk on October 21.  Everyone who collects $50 or more will get a free souvenir tee shirt.

Non-perishable food items are also requested and CHOW will have collection barrels set-up at the Hunger Walk site.  Additional information is available by calling the Council of Churches at 724-9130.
