Run for Food's mission is to provide funding and support to food banks and homeless shelters across the country through Thanksgiving Day charity runs.
Furthermore, by hosting these extraordinary giving events, we aim to increase community awareness of the services provided by these organizations.
Run for Food began in 2006 by a group of Chico, CA families and businesses. Its sole purpose was to raise funds for the local food bank and women’s shelter. The event has grown significantly each year and has expanded to other cities across the country – all in an effort to raise funds to end homelessness and hunger in our country.
In the spirit of giving thanks, why not spend your Thanksgiving morning working up an appetite, helping the homeless and enjoying time with friends and family?
