We’d love to have you join us on Thanksgiving morning at the Mall of America for the annual Walk to End Hunger family-friendly 5k fun walk, however we understand that not everyone’s holiday plans allow them to do so. If you aren’t able to make it to the Walk, but would still like to support hunger relief initiatives at Neighbors, Inc., here is a list of upcoming events and opportunities for you.

Cub Foods Grocery Bagging Event

Volunteers from our Walk to End Hunger teams will be bagging groceries for donations on Saturday, November 18 at the Cub Foods in Inver Grove Heights. All donations raised will go toward Neighbors.
