Interfaith Food Pantry members support Essex County’s local fight against hunger 26 May , 2011

The Eight Annual Essex County Walk to Fight Hunger attracted 220 walkers and was intended to raise awareness of hunger in Essex County, as well as to raise funds to help fight hunger. It was sponsored by Catholic Charities and MEND, Meeting Emergency Needs with Dignity, www.mendnj.org.

The walkers gathered in Washington Park in Newark on a spring day earlier this month, and listened to a band and speakers including Mayor Jerry Fried of Montclair and Mayor Eldridge Hawkins Jr. of Orange.

Then, the walkers proceeded along the sidewalks of Broad Street during the business day, chanting “Help us Feed, Kids in Need, One in Six are Hungry.”
