The East Bay Food Pantry is hosting their fourth annual "Get Off Your CAN - 5K Run/Walk to End Hunger" at 9:00 am at the Bristol Town Beach Pavilion on Saturday, June 16th, 2012.
Funds raised with the "Get Off Your CAN - 5K Run/Walk to End Hunger!" event will be used to support the work of the East Bay Food Pantry located at 150 Franklin Street in Bristol. "Our current efforts include expanding our healthy food options for our clients and their children as part of our Access Nutrition Initiative. We are also kicking off our Food4Kids program this summer which provides nutritious food every week for children who receive free or reduced lunch during the school year. We are committed to helping our clients increase their understanding of good nutrition and supporting their use of healthy foods with an array of recipes, food tastings and healthy cooking classes. We are energized by the real potential for positive impact this initiative can make in the lives of some of the most vulnerable RI children and their families."
