***********************************************.
This year’s walk is being organized and directed by Norma Duckworth, an immigrant who experienced hunger as a young girl in Mexico. “I remember vividly,” said Duckworth. “There was no bread or milk to feed us. We often went to bed hungry. People are not aware of the issues in other countries, how difficult it is…And here in Milwaukee, there’s hunger, poverty.”
