Why We Walk

The Hunger Walk is a collaborative effort to promote hunger awareness and to raise funds for hunger relief for children and families living in Pasco County.

By participating in the Hunger Walk you be supporting the Pasco Pack A Sack Food 4 Kids and Metropolitan Ministries Pasco  provide healthy meals for many children and families that are going hungry. You will also enjoy a fun, family festival atmosphere that includes activities, games, and entertainment. 

In Pasco County: 

  •  More than 36,000 kids live in households that struggle to put food on the table.
  • 65,000 people in Pasco County live below poverty level – just one emergency away from homelessness.
  • Florida has the third largest population of homeless persons of any state in the nation.
  • 52% of schools in Pasco County receive free and reduced lunches for their students. Many of these same students do not have enough food to eat over the weekend.
  • Children who go hungry are more likely to be sick, hospitalized, miss school and have chronic health issues as they grow up.

Funds raised at the 2017 Hunger Walk will be used to provide food for children in our Pasco Pack A Sack program and help cover costs for hot meals provided by Metropolitan Ministries. 





Help us reach our goal of $100,000

Pasco Pack-A-Sack Food 4 Kids provides backpacks filled with healthy and nutritious food for children on the weekends and over extended school breaks. For just $5 a week you can provide nutritious, healthy food for a hungry child. Consider making a donation of $260 to feed one child for an entire year. 

 “The Pack A Sack meals are an absolute God send.  Our family is facing tough times, as many in our community are.  The children are excited to receive their sacks on Fridays, and it is a peace of mind thing to know that I can feed my children.  I appreciate the program you have and am grateful to have the help.  Thanks again for the great work of this program.”


"Thank you so much for having Pack A Sacks for the kids. My son gets so excited every Friday when it's time to pick up his sack. It's so nice not to have to worry about food over the weekends."


"Money is hard to come by and the Pack A Sacks help us so much on the weekends when we can't afford extra food. We appreciate Gulfside and Generations Church for providing the extra food for our kids."
