This year, the SLO Food Bank’s Turkey Trot returns to the traditional gathering in Avila Beach and Pismo Beach and also offers the virtual option to participate. Participants help raise awareness about hunger in SLO County, and all fundraising efforts will provide critical meals and nutrition to those in need. The in-person trot is a 2-mile walk: the Avila Beach location begins at the Avila Beach Promenade and continues down the Bob Jones Trail. The Pismo Beach location goes along the sand, beginning by the pier behind the Pismo Beach letters. The virtual trot can be a walk, run or hike on your own or with family and closest friends at a location of your choice. Everyone interested in participating in the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning can sign up at slofoodbank.org. Every participant receives an event t-shirt and can become eligible to win prizes by fundraising online and sharing their experience on social media.
