On Monday, September 9th, Chris Allinger will set out on another week-long quest for money to support the Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s BackPack ProgramTM that provides healthy, child-friendly, and easy to prepare foods to children at risk of hunger over weekends and holiday breaks when children do not have access to free or reduced price school meal programs. His walk will take him to every town in Tompkins County collecting donations.  At close to 100 miles this year, that’s a lot of footsteps for a whole lot of children. Last year, Chris’s walk raised $20 Thousand Dollars for this important program.  This year his goal is the same as last year.
