LEWISTON – Brenda Davis walked to Rainbow FCU on Main Street on Nov. 4 as she continued her Ending Hunger tour of the state.

This is the third annual Maine Credit Unions’ Ending Hunger Walking Tour. Davis and the credit unions of Maine continue this effort in order to build awareness about the problem of hunger. During November, Davis will walk throughout the state from Madawaska to Sanford, averaging 20 to 30 miles a day.

Davis is visiting food pantries, hunger organizations and credit unions in each town she visits. At Rainbow FCU, Davis picked up a contribution from the Maine Credit Union’s Campaign for Ending Hunger as a way to support her cause.

She began her month-long journey on Nov. 1 in Westbrook. In all, the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger has pledged to contribute more than $8,500 to the Ending Hunger Walking Tour.

The walk, which is expected to encompass more than 600 miles, will conclude with a special ceremony in Old Town on Saturday, Nov. 20.

In the first two years, Davis walked nearly 900 miles to raise awareness for ending hunger. During that time, Maine’s credit unions contributed $14,000 of the $19,000 that the tour raised.

In addition, Rainbow is selling cookbooks for the cause.
