This collection of photos was taken at the 34th annual Pike County Hunger Walk on Sunday, Oct. 20, 2019. The 1-mile walk began and ended at First Baptist Church in Waverly, stopping in front of the Pike County Outreach food pantry for a prayer.
A group of students from the Waverly High School Rotary Interact and LEO clubs carried the banner, just ahead of the Waverly High School Marching Tigers, who provided the soundtrack for the walk. Those groups were followed by more students, community members, and families. In force, the walkers took up an entire city block.
Financial donations may be mailed or delivered to the Pike County Outreach Council of Churches office at 107 W. Second St., Waverly, Ohio 45690. Non-perishable food for the food pantry is accepted any time all year.
