DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — One in six households in North Carolina struggle to put food on the table.
Sunday, more than 1,400 people participated in the Durham CROP Hunger Walk to lower that statistic.
CBS North Carolina’s own Storm Team Meteorologist Bill Reh emceed the event.
In the past 42 years of the walk, locals have raised $4 million to help end hunger across the world and right here in the Triangle.
“Afford the opportunity to find more about how prevalent hunger is in the Durham community. It’s an easy thing to do- knowing that others have to do much more than I do which is just walk a few miles,” said Tuvara Madison.
Sunday was Madison’s 13th time to walk in the Durham CROP Hunger Walk.
North Carolina is the ninth hungriest state in the country.
