Hundreds 'Walk For Hunger'

Proceeds to go to Canton Food Bank.

Overcast skies and a light breeze made for a perfect day for the "Walk for Hunger” Saturday. 

Proceeds from the second annual event will go to the Canton Food Bank, which is housed at Trinity Episcopal Church. 

Participants walked from the Community Center to Collinsville and back, stopping along the way at Collinsville Congregational Church for water, treats for the dogs and some festivities. 

The event is sponsored by FOCUS on Canton, a non-profit that coordinates the food bank and several other efforts in town. 

An immediate total of funds raised was not available.

Great photography and write up by Paul Talbot. Thanks to everyone helping to raise nearly $2,000 for Canton Food Bank. The weather really cooperated and it was so much fun.
