Patrick Hughes Award for Social Justice
Grant Category: Award
The Patrick Hughes Award for Social Justice was created in 2019 to honor the legacy of Patrick Hughes, whose deep-seated passion for social justice and entrepreneurial spirit led him to found Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger in 1969. Patrick dedicated his life to working for the greater good. His activism and advocacy was anchored in optimism and stemmed from his belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every human being.
This award recognizes an individual with an unyielding commitment to driving meaningful change by addressing the root causes of hunger, thus carrying forward the spirit of Patrick’s legacy. As part of the recognition, the awardee will be allowed to designate a $10,000 gift to an anti-hunger or anti-poverty organization of their choosing.
*Organizations that receive award are not eligible to receive it again for 5 years.
