Bangor Church Hosts Walk for Hunger 

Folks tied on their tennis shoes and walked for a good cause Saturday morning in Bangor.The Grace United Methodist Church hosted its Fourth Annual Walk for Hunger.The four mile walk began at the church on Union Street in Bangor.Proceeds of the walk benefit the Hammond Street Ecumenical Food Cupboard.Daralene Shortt founded the event four years ago and said it’s important to give back to this cause.”It’s just that it’s a very big need in this time and place of people out of work and more and more families are coming to the food cupboard asking for help so it’s very important that we give,” she said.Last year, the Walk for Hunger raised one thousand dollars.If you would like to help the food bank, you can donate money or non-perishable food items to the church.They are located at 193 Union Street.
