Participants commit to fasting for 24 hours to raise funds for Casa de Peregrinos


Participants in Casa de Peregrinos (CdP) emergency food program’s fifth annual Hunger Strike met Thursday morning to kick off this year’s event, and began a 24-hour fast.

Hunger Strike is “instrumental in bringing attention to the issue of hunger and food insecurity (in Las Cruces and Doña Ana County), helping us make significant strides toward a hunger-free community,” Lorenzo Alba Jr., executive director of CdP,. “We believe that by uniting once again, we can make an even greater impact and work towards a future where no one in our community has to go to bed hungry.”

Fifty-six people signed up for this year’s event to bring awareness to hunger in Doña Ana County, and to raise funds for CdP.

Eight members of the Las Cruces Police Department have joined this year’s Hunger Strike.
