Save the Date for our 25th Annual Hunger Walk on Sunday, November 8, 2015!

To celebrate this milestone year, we will have some special surprises so mark your calendars now. The location is the same as last year, Ocean View Park, 2701 Barnard Way, Santa Monica, 90405. For information on sponsorship, contact Michael Girsback.

We held our 24th Annual 5K Hunger Walk on October 26, 2014 along the beautiful beach path in Santa Monica. Hundreds of people came out to enjoy the day, including a musical performance by Jonathan Licht, who raised funds for us earlier in the season at his "Music 4 A Cause" concert and an awards ceremony hosted by Holly Hannula from NBC4 Southern California's "Today in LA" show. Thank you to all those who participated and volunteered, including the many local businesses, schools and congregations that put together impressive walking teams. To see photos from the event, check out the album on our Facebook page. Be sure to like us while you?re there!

The Westside Food Bank’s annual walk-a-thon and kick-off for our holiday food drive attracts hundreds of participants from companies, churches, schools, non-profit agencies and the community at large. There will be food & drinks, games, raffle prizes and much more. This walk-a-thon is a fun way to spend the afternoon with co-workers, family and friends while helping our less fortunate neighbors right here in our own community.
