This Sunday 29 May, the Walk against Hunger, organised around the world by the United Nation’s World Food Programme, is taking place for the second time in Barcelona.
A gentle 5 kilometres, it will set off from the Arc de Triomf, on Passeig de Lluís Companys, at 10 am. finishing at 11.30 am at the latest.
The walk will cover the Ronda de Sant Pere, Plaça de Catalunya, the Rambla, Portal de la Pau, Passeig de Colom and Passeig d’Isabel II, Avinguda del Marquès de l’Argentera, Passeig de Picasso, Avinguda de Pujades before reaching Passeig de Lluís Companys again, by the Arc de Triomf.
Just before the walk starts, the organisers will hand out IDs in the marquees located at the starting point, which participants will have to return once they have completed the walk. They will then receive a souvenir gift in recognition of their contribution to the walk.
This idea is to collect money towards eradicating hunger in the world (for every euro collected, four food rations can be given to the World Food Programme) while raising society’s awareness of a serious problem affecting millions of people across the globe. People are free to give as much as they want.
The Walk against Hunger will take place simultaneously in about 250 cities in 70 countries. It is one of the best ways to show solidarity while spending a pleasant Sunday morning in the open air, so it is hoped that thousands of people will take part in this worthy cause.
