Faith leader press conference

On Thanksgiving eve, 1969, 9-year-old Bobby Ellis died of hunger in his home in Louisville. This tragedy rocked the community. Leaders from the faith communities united to launch an anti-hunger movement. This energy created Dare to Care Food Bank.  Each year, leaders from different faiths gather to kick-off The Hunger Walk.  This video is the 2019 Hunger Walk Faith Leader Press Conference.
