2022 Fundraising Walk to Support the Abenaki Food Pantry

On Saturday, January 22, 2022 from 12noon - 1:00 p.m. ET, please join the MLK Health Equity Celebration Committee for a 1.15 mile (representing MLK’s birthday) community activity and fundraiser around Occom Pond in Hanover, NH. Pledge to walk, run, snowshoe, ski, or participate in your activity of choice in support of the Abenaki food pantry in Swanton, VT.

The food pantry serves over 230 families monthly, and their need for donations has greatly increased due to the COVID-19 crisis. This event can be held both on-your-own and in person on Saturday, January 22, 2022.

For more information about the Abenaki Food Pantry, please visit: https://www.abenakination.com/food-shelf/.

To donate, please click here or the button below. Please make a note that the donation is for the Geisel MLK Celebration. If you are participating in person, there will be hot cocoa and cookies provided by the Dartmouth Outing Club House near Rope Ferry Rd. Feel free to post about this on social media and invite friends and family to join!


In 2021, our MLK Service fundraiser with the Abenaki Food Pantry raised over $2,500. We thank you again for your continued support of this important community lifeline.
