Food For The Poor is hosting its first Race For Hunger, a multinational virtual event, June 1 through June 30 in the United States, Canada, and Jamaica.
Participants in the United States, Canada and Jamaica will raise funds to provide 1 million lifesaving meals to children and families throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.
In addition to the 1 million meals, five homes will be built for families in dire need in Jamaica. Participants there will have an opportunity to walk, run or ride to fundraise to build these homes.
