Henning attends Bishop Hendricken High School’s annual hunger walk

WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) — Bishop Hendricken High School’s annual hunger walk started Thursday morning in Warwick.

Bishop Richard Henning, coadjutor bishop of Providence, attended the walk for the first time.

“It is our honor to welcome back Bishop Henning to the Hendricken community and to have him lead us in this annual Hunger Walk,” said Fr. Robert Marciano, president of the school.

This is the 49th annual walk, taking place as the Catholic Church celebrates Holy Thursday.

Students walked a 10K, which is 6.5 miles, to raise funds benefitting local food pantries, homeless shelters, and community food banks.

The tradition started in 1975.

Iggy’s Doughboys and Chowder House is donating 10% of all proceeds at its restaurants Thursday to the Hendricken Hunger Walk.

Before the start of the walk, a prayer service was held for the students.
