September is Hunger Action Month and in St. Lawrence County, hunger action is still needed.
GardenShare is a Canton-based non-profit organization which promotes a local food system that ensures food security for all St. Lawrence County residents. The Fight Hunger Fair & 5K is a new combined GardenShare event, bringing together the presentation of the 2022 Growing Community Award, Hunger Action Month activities, and GardenShare’s annual Fight Hunger 5K.
This will be a fun and family-friendly community event to bring awareness of food justice work in St. Lawrence County. Before, during and after the 5K run/walk, there will be educational games and activities centered around food system awareness; a story walk, radish toss, etc., and live music, as well as tabling of community partners who strive to alleviate local hunger and food insecurity. Want more information on the Fight Hunger Fair? Visit GardenShare for a full Fight Hunger Fair overview.

Participants will make a right onto Romoda Drive onto St. Lawrence's campus, followed by a left onto Laurentian Way. They will then make a left onto the gravel-lined Saddlemire Trail/Avenue of the Elms and do an out and back as far as the gravel goes. Next participants make a right back onto Laurentian and then a left onto Romoda. Romoda curves to the right, ending at University Avenue. Participants will use the crosswalk to cross University, making a left onto University. They will then make a right onto Park Street and then continue on Park back to the corner of the Village Park and will wind back around the park to finish at the fountain where they started.
