Walk to Feed the Hungry

Buddhist Global Releif Walk to Feed the Hungry. Join us for a day of compassionate action.

This year the walk will again be along the Heights Esplanade Trail on Heights Boulevard, a beautiful setting for a walk of compassion with friends! We invite everyone to participate by registering to walk, making a donation, or volunteering. Your efforts and generosity will help with programs that provide direct relief, promote sustainable agriculture, and provide education and right livelihood opportunities for women.

The 3.1 mile walk will begin at the Houston Zen Center, located at 1605 Heights Blvd, Houston, TX 77008. We will then walk south down Heights Boulevard towards I-10 and turn around to end the walk at the Zen Center. Participants may turn around at any point to return to the Zen Center as needed.

Please bring hats, water bottles, sunblock or anything else you might need for the walk. After the walk there will be a few closing words followed by a light potluck lunch and refreshments. If you’d like to bring a vegetarian dish, please email us.
