LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The final Mosey Down Main Street of the year took place Saturday evening. The focus of the Mosey was fighting hunger in our area.
September is Hunger Awareness Month and to kick it all off, the Mosey teamed up with Food Finder's Food Bank for a food drive.
The group set up at the corner of 7th and Main Street and collected non-perishable food items, as well as cash.
Food Finder's Executive Director Katy Bunder said there's a huge need to fight hunger in our area.
"There are people who don't look malnourished, but who are malnourished because affordable good food is really out of their reach," said Bunder. "So, we all need to come together to try to get better food to more people, so they can have a healthy diet."
The Hunger Awareness events are just getting started. On September 4, Bunder said Food Finder's will be at Riehle Plaza for their "Stuff the Bus" event. The Hunger Hike will take place on September 15.
