Delta 2000 is sponsoring the 21st annual East County Hunger Walk on Saturday, Oct. 4 at Contra Loma Park beginning at 8:30 a.m. The 2½-mile walk is the oldest grassroots effort to raise funds for East County food closets and pantries.
The first 140 walkers who bring $20 in pledges and donations will receive a Hunger Walk T-shirt, compliments of Sutter Delta Medical Center. Last year, walkers raised nearly $10,000 for 12 food closets from Bay Point to Brentwood.
