Walk to Fight Hunger: leaf-peeping for a good cause

HIGHLAND - This fall, the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley invites people to leaf-peep for a good cause during the 17th Annual Walk to Fight Hunger on the Walkway Over the Hudson (87 Haviland Road, Highland).
One online publication recently named the Walkway “the prettiest place to see fall foliage near New York City” (PureWow).
This year's Walk will take place on Saturday, September 21 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
No registration is necessary - participants are encouraged to show up with family, friends and pets any time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
With every donation of $25 or more, participants will receive a super-soft Walk to Fight Hunger T-shirt (while supplies last), and every donor will enjoy complimentary healthy snacks.
After working up an appetite, participants can stop at the Pomodoro Pizza Café for a traditional Italian meal, or the Frozen Caboose Ice Cream for a cold treat. Located just steps away from the Walkway's Highland Entrance, both eateries will donate 10% of that day's proceeds to the Food Bank.
Funds raised during the Walk to Fight Hunger will help the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley alleviate hunger and prevent food waste throughout a six-county service area: Orange, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, Dutchess, and Putnam counties. Across the region, 117,130 people (including 51,640 children) are food insecure, despite an improving economy.
For more details, please visit www.foodbankofhudsonvalley.org or call (845) 534-5344.
The 17th Annual Walk to Fight Hunger is sponsored by Hannaford Supermarkets, Barton Cadillac Chevrolet, Nuvance Health, and Crystal Run Village, Inc., with media support provided by NOW 97.7.
