While we had planned to eagerly tackle this year's Hunger Walk / Run on Sunday, March 15, 2020, my terrific husband Ron and I, along with members of St Catherine's Episcopal Church and friends in the hospitality and meeting industry, were stopped short of walking or running due to the unexpected impact of the COVID-19 virus which resulted in cancellation of the annual Hunger Walk Run. Since this event is one of the most important hunger relief efforts of the year, and the Hunger Walk/Run is the largest fund raiser for the Atlanta Community Food Bank, it was totally regrettable that it was not held.
The Bergeron Family encourages our friends to continue supporting this event virtually, to help feed the one in 7 people in our community who face hunger daily. In commemoration of our more than 30 years of walking and volunteering with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to help end hunger in Georgia, we will personally match all donations made by March 30th.

Won't you please join us in supporting this important mission? You can help us reach our personal fundraising goal by making a donation on our behalf. Happy to note that 25% of all funds raised by us and the St. Catherine's Episcopal Team will be shared with the Episcopal Communities Foundation to help support food pantries, community kitchens, shelters and other direct hunger relief programs for people in need of food assistance
Together, we can make sure that a child in our community doesn’t go to bed hungry tonight. We can offer a glimmer of hope to struggling parents desperately trying to make ends meet for their family. We can ensure another senior citizen isn’t forced to choose between paying for medicine or food. The Atlanta Community Food Bank is doing a great deal to help provide food for those feeling the effects of COVID-19, who may be ill or suddenly unemployed, and your donation will be especially appreciated at this time!
Thank you so much, and we hope you will be generous in your giving, please.
