Twenty-five percent of the money raised at the walk will go to support the following local food pantries: Monroe Community Food Pantry, Monroe Presbyterian Food Pantry, Highland Mills Food Pantry, Washingtonville Food Pantry (Country Kids) and Chester Food Pantry.

This year, the Chester Kiwanis Club and the Monroe Woodbury Islamic Center also are participating.
