About Shoe Away Hunger

How It Works

ShoeAwayHunger

It’s easy. Simply bring your new or gently-used footwear including sneakers, sportsshoes, casual shoes, boots, flip flops, ice skates, etc. and drop them off at the market.

Encourage your friends, relatives and neighbors to do the same. Tie or band them together, place them in a plastic bag to keep them dry.

It keep shoes out of landfills and supports hunger relief efforts. For every 1 pair of new or gently-used footwear received, the Shoe Away Hunger program is able to feed one more person with up to 7 days of essential groceries through their Feeding The Future programs.

Shoe Away Hunger At the Market

At the 2018 market, we hosted a shoe drive all summer long for Shoe Away Hunger, collecting shoes.

Thank you to everyone who donated shoes.  It was a success!  Check back in 2019 for the bus!
