GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Hunger Hike was just over a week ago but it has yet to reach its goal of $100,000. 

The non-profit event aims to help those struggling with food insecurities here in Lafayette and as well as Haiti.
The hike took place on Riehle Plaza and more than one thousand people attended the event. The money is given to multiple different organizations throughout Greater Lafayette.

Such as Lafayette Urban Ministries, St. Thomas Aquinas and Food Finders Food Bank.

LUM Executive Director Joe Micon says he wants to remind the community they still need more donations to hit their goal.

"People in the community have contributed many dollars. Our goal for this year is one hundred thousand dollars and we are just shy of that. We are almost there. We are currently at ninety thousand dollars," said Micon.

If you are looking to donate to the cause you can visit their website.
