About the Walk to End Hunger

What is the Walk to End Hunger?

The Walk to End Hunger is a fundraising walk held on Thanksgiving Day at the Mall of America. Historically, over 5,000 Minnesotans gather at the Mall of America to give back, before giving thanks.

Since it's inception in 2008, the Walk to End Hunger has raised over $3,000,000 to help support hunger relief organizations working to eliminate hunger in the Twin Cities metro area. 100% of the net proceeds are distributed to our partner organizations. 

The Walk to End Hunger is presented by the Minnesota Hunger Initiative (formerly the Twin Cities Hunger Initiative), a collaboration of hunger relief partner agencies that have developed a definitive plan to eliminate hunger in the Twin Cities and across the state of Minnesota.

Registration for this year's Walk to End Hunger opens October 1st. Check back for more information. 

This year, the Walk to End Hunger is excited to welcome you back to the Mall of America on Thanksgiving morning!
