La Puente’s Hunger Education Week wrapped up on Friday. The week’s events were designed to bring awareness to hunger so the community can work together to fight it. The week saw community-wide involvement to fight hunger, not just here in the Valley, but worldwide.
The week kicked off on Sunday, April 7 with the 25th annual CROP Walk at the Alamosa Senior Center. The Community raised more than $2,000 for Church World Services, an international hunger relief organization and the local SLV Food Bank Network.
Over 200 community members walked 5km in solidarity for those who are experiencing hunger at this very moment. Members from local organizations, churches, and Adams State University students and staff came out to support the cause.
