Fighting Hunger in Cheney
Hunger Stomp is a 5K Fun Run/Walk that will bringcollege students, church-goers, and city residents together tobenefit two local organizationsthat fight hunger year-round.
First is Feed Cheney, which provides a monthlyfree hot meal, and the other is the Cheney Food Bank, which serves over 400families and distributes 100,000 pounds of food annually.
The run/walkwill begin at 10 a.m. on Oct. 22 at the Cheney High School parking lot.
