Join "Feed the Need" for a 5K walk/run at Wompatuck State Park in Hingham this month for a fundraiser that benefits South Shore food pantries. In addition to the 5K, there will be tot fun runs for the kids. The first 100 registrants will receive t-shirts, and the top three finishers in each age group will be awarded medals. The entry fee is 25 cans/boxes of food or $20 (family maximum of $60). Help this all-volunteer group feed the need in local communities. Sat., March 30. Kids 1-mile race starts at 8 a.m.; 5K starts at 8:30. Wompatuck State Park, Union St., Hingham. www.feedtheneed.org
