A hunger walk is planned for Sept. 25 in Houston.

An event that provides meals for adults as well as area students is this month.

The 24th annual Texas County Stomp Out Hunger Walk is Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Houston Senior Center. Registration is 1:30 p.m. with the walk –– with one- and three-mile routes –– at 2 p.m.

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 wins the Annual Stinky Shoe Award. 

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) and the Licking United Community Help Center.  

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