A local charity plans to raise millions to feed families through its sixth annual Canning Hunger Partnership 5K Run/Walk and 1K Kids Run today at 8 a.m.

Canning Hunger, a Brea-based nonprofit organization, uses neighborhood leaders and volunteers to bring hunger relief to disadvantaged communities.

The event will enlist the help of 200 volunteers; more than 1,000 runners are expected. According to Canning Hunger, the races have, over five years, provided more than 3 million meals to area families.

Race registration starts at 6:30 a.m. The 5K Run/Walk is $20; the 1K Kids Run is $14. Information: (714) 279-6570.
