Buddhist Global Relief Walk to Feed the Hungry: San Francisco, CA

Northern California  

October 19, 2013
1:00 pmto5:00 pm

We are excited to announce the Annual Walk to Feed the Hungry in San Francisco on Saturday, October 19, 2013. Buddhists will gather together to participate in the Walk to support the hunger relief programs of Buddhist Global Relief (http://www.buddhistglobalrelief.org/active/bgrMission.html), the charity founded by the renowned Buddhist scholar-monk Bhikkhu Bodhi. We invite you to join this work of compassion by walking, volunteering, or making a donation. Buddhist Global Relief provides grants for global hunger relief programs, including programs in education, farming, and women’s livelihood — all aiming toward food security.

The walk will begin at Gold Mountain Monastery in Chinatown and wend its way through to Japantown, stopping at temples along the way, and end in front of the San Francisco Zen Center. There will be photo ops at Grace Cathedral and the Japanese Peace Pagoda. San Francisco has a rich Buddhist history. There will be opportunities to see beautiful shrines as well as beautiful views as we visit some of the city’s high spots (yes, there will be some hills to climb). Of course, the greatest opportunity of all is to express our compassion through helping the poorest of the poor around the globe.

People are encouraged to join-in or depart as they need during the 3.8 mile walk.
