Hunger Walk

The Hunger Walk

Each year, the Healing Center participates in only one fundraiser: the Annual Freestore Foodbank Hunger Walk & 5K Run. 

The Hunger Walk is a 5K (3.1 miles) walk or run in downtown Cincinnati on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, 2019 at 9am in Downtown Cincinnati.

The Hunger Walk is our biggest opportunity each year to raise funds to provide food to guests throughout the year.

Did you know? The Healing Center serves more than 3,000 children, senior citizens and adults each month, so the Hunger Walk is critical to our service to the community.


We would love to have you join us at the Hunger Walk on Memorial Day, but even if you're not walking/running in the Hunger Walk, you can still support the Healing Center just by donating. 

Every dollar raised brings real help and hope to people who need it. A successful Hunger Walk provides needed items for our pantry for an entire year.

Donate Here!


By registering for the Healing Center's Hunger Walk Team, you can provide over 60 meals to guests at the Healing Center! How does the Freestore Foodbank provide SO much food for my registration? There are very generous donors who donate product on a large scale, which allows the Freestore Foodbank to provide inventory for other agencies. The Freestore Foodbank purchases items in such high quantities that they are able to receive bulk discounts.
