Join the Amherst Survival Center for our 2nd annual month-long Hike for Hunger! Hike for Hunger is an opportunity for you to be outside and active while ensuring our neighbors have access to nutritious food. You can register as an individual or as part of a team and set your personal hiking goal. Once you register, you’ll be able to create your own fundraising page to start collecting donations from family and friends. Come October, head out on the trails wherever and whenever you’d like – with your family, your friends, or your furry friends – and share your adventures.
Proceeds from Hike for Hunger go directly to our food and nutrition programs, reaching more than 7,000 people annually.
Registration is $25 and includes a 2021 Hike for Hunger t-shirt. There is no fundraising minimum, but those who fundraise will be eligible to earn great prizes.
Save the date! The District One Neighborhood Association (DONA) will hold a candidate forum for District One (Voting Precincts 1 & 3) Town Council candidates and at-Large Town Council candidates on Sunday, October 3, 2021, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. With questions submitted by Amherst residents, this Zoom forum will be moderated by District One resident and retiring at-Large Town Councilor Alisa Brewer. DONA seeks input and questions from residents prior to the forum. We will also try to provide opportunity for some limited discussion, back and forth between candidates and voters. For more information or to suggest topics for the forum, contact DONA at: ContactUs@amherstdona.org or see our website.
