Walk for Hunger 

The shelves of a local food pantry are much more full, thanks to the dedication of several volunteers in the Bangor area.They took part in the third annual “walk for hunger,” to benefit the Hammond Street Ecumenical Food Cupboard.The four mile walk stepped off from Grace United Methodist church and proceeded to Saint Mary’s church and back.Participants were then treated to a free community lunch.All the proceeds will go directly to the food cupboard. “There’s a large population of people who either don’t have a place to live…or are looking for a job…so this gives people the chance to get together and help out,” Said the Pastor of Grace United Methodist church Kathleen Macedo.Nine local churches work together to support the Hammond Street Ecumenical Food Cupboard.
