ACRS Walk for Rice 2019
June 22, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS) Walk for Rice is a fundraising event featuring a 2.5 mile walk/run. Each year, over 1,000 participants help raise money for ACRS to buy rice and other food for the ACRS Food Bank, which is the one of the most visited food banks in King County, and the only one in the state that regularly provides foods that are familiar to the Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) diet. Each year, more than 5,200 people rely on their food bank and nutrition programs to have enough to eat. More than 56% of ACRS clients are children under 18 years or seniors over 65.
