A local nonprofit is inviting the public to eat and run — for charity.

Neighborhood Services Organization’s third annual Hungryman Challenge is set for Saturday, with the race start and finish lines in the Ninth Street District of downtown Oklahoma City.

Stacey Ninness, the agency’s CEO, said participating teams are typically made up of two to four people, although last year’s winner was a one-man team. She said each team member eats food provided for their leg of the race before they run. She said this year’s food will be provided by Sara Sara Cupcakes, S&B Burger Joint, Iguana Mexican Grill and Hillbillies Po’boys & Oysters.

Ninness said proceeds from the event will help the organization continue to serve the homeless and at-risk population of Oklahoma City. The nonprofit offers transitional housing for individuals who need help gaining independence, permanent housing for individuals with mental illness, rental assistance, and Women, Infants and Children (WIC) clinics.

Ninness said the organization affected the lives of more than 72,000 people last year.
