May thru June 27 – ACRS is launching Walk for Rice online this year instead of hosting the event at Seward Park, to ensure everyone’s safety during the global pandemic health crisis. While the event location has changed, our commitment to this growing need is stronger than ever. More than ever, every grain counts. Together, we can ensure members of our communities find support and food when they need it most. Please make a gift today and consider creating a virtual Walk for Rice team to fundraise to fight hunger.
