Walk and Knock, one of the nation’s largest one day food drives, is a Non-Profit 100% volunteer organization that collects charitable donations of food, supplies, and money, for the Clark County Food Bank for providing food to those in need across our community. This drive takes place every year on the Saturday of December.
You can help in the fight against hunger by filling your Walk and Knock grocery bag with non-perishables and leave it on your front porch on Saturday morning. If you haven’t received a Walk and Knock grocery bag before Saturday, December 2, please feel free to use any grocery bag, just be sure to label it “Walk and Knock”. A half a bag, a full bag, or even two bags if you can… every bit helps!
Volunteers will gather together Saturday morning and begin their routes. They go door–to–door to collect the bags and deliver the food to one of ten drop–off locations or staging areas located throughout Clark County. The food is then boxed by volunteers and delivered to the Clark County Food Bank. From there it is distributed to 15 local food banks which distribute the collected food to people in need.
The Walk and Knock Food Drive encompasses the entire Clark County area. Volunteers come from local church groups, high school clubs, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Campfire, and several other organizations, as well as hundreds of other individuals who answer the call for help. Members of local non-profit organizations and other community leaders head up the various staging sites.
