They’re the best we have but they’re not the best. People that have limited resources – they’re cars aren’t always in the best repair. They live miles and miles from a supermarket.”The Ending Hunger Tour took Davis to all of the counties in the state. In its eight years, the walk has raised more than $170,000 dollars.
