The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana is proud to announce that the 2016 Hunger Hustle, a 5k Walk/Run to help fight hunger in the Region, will be held on October 1 at Oak Ridge  in Griffith, Indiana. 

8AM registration | 9AM race begins

$10/person to register
Fundraise an additional $40/person* to get a limited edition Hunger Hustle 2016 t-shirt!


The Hunger Hustle 5K is a family-friendly event that inspires the community to join the fight against hunger and help provide nutritious meals for individuals and families in need.

Hunger exists in every community across the Region, and we want to ensure that all of our neighbors have enough to eat. Proceeds from the event will be used to stock the shelves of local food pantries and soup kitchens, just in time to meet the increased demand during the holiday season.

Last year more than 800 participants and volunteers came together to fight hunger, raising almost $75,000 to feed those in need!

We invite you to join the fight against hunger. By creating a team, fundraising, or through sponsorship you can help bring hope to thousands of our hungry neighbors in Lake and Porter County. With your help, we can make a difference in the lives of our hungry neighbors and build stronger, healthier communities.

Visit to form your team or register as an individual, and get moving in the fight against hunger in Northwest Indiana! Contact Emily at with any questions.
