A hunger walk is planned for Sunday in Houston.

An event that provides meals for adults as well as area students is scheduled for Sunday.

The 24th annual “Texas County Stomp Out Hunger Walk” starts at the Houston Senior Center on Grand Avenue. The walk includes one and three-mile routes. Registration is at 1:30 p.m. with the walk at 2 p.m.

All proceeds will benefit close to 900 families who receive food from the Texas County Food Pantry, Blessings in a Backpack Weekend Food Program, Licking Weekend Food Program (Love Packs), the Licking United Community Help Center and Texas County schools.  

Pledge envelopes may be picked up at the Texas County Food Pantry or from a member of the Houston Lions Club.  Walkers can make their tax-deductible donations payable to Community Foundation of the Ozarks (CFO).  The person, organization, business or church that raises the most funds will win the Annual “Stinky Shoe Award.” Walkers are encouraged to bring their family and friends.

To make a donation or for more information, call Bennie Cook of the Houston Lions Club at 417-260-2382.
