MEXICO – As part of the fifth annual Maine Credit Unions’ Ending Hunger Walking Tour, Maine’s credit unions have partnered with Cross Roads Ministries, an Old Town-based hunger agency to raise awareness about the problem of hunger in Maine. This year the walk also made a contribution to a food pantry in all 47 of the communities that the tour visited.

During November, Brenda Davis, executive director of Cross Roads Ministries, traveled throughout the state, visiting food pantries, hunger organizations and credit unions in each town she visited.

At each credit union, she picked up a contribution from the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger. In addition, the campaign is contributing nearly $5,000 to food pantries throughout Maine. A food pantry in each community that Davis visited received a $100 contribution. The walk brought Davis to the Oxford Federal Credit Union in Mexico on Nov. 16.

In its first four years, Davis has walked more than 2,000 miles to raise awareness for ending hunger and Maine’s credit unions have contributed $53,000 of the $60,000 that the tour has raised.
