LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—People came together to walk in the fight against hunger on Sunday.

Hunger Hike 3K walk is a fundraising event aimed at raising awareness to make a difference in the fight against hunger.

Participants walked a scenic route along the Wabash River.

All registration fees went towards the Lafayette Urban Ministry food assistance and Food Finders Food Bank.

CEO for Food Finders Food Bank, Katy Bunder, said doing something like this is important for those in the community.

"Also hope they'll gain some awareness of the fact that we have to do these kinds of events to raise money to keep feeding people," said Bunder. "We do them year after year because the problem doesn't go away."

This was the 30th annual Hunger Hike event.
