On July 27, 2013, close to 400 walkers dodged intermittent raindrops and walked through the beautiful streets of Williamsville to benefit the Food Bank of WNY’s 6th annual Walk Off Hunger. This year’s Walk was so successful and so rewarding, we are already in the planning stages for next year! Walk Off Hunger 2013 raised almost $45,900! This amount translates into approximately 208,636 meals for area families, seniors, veterans and children.
