Always on the 1st Sunday in May on Boston Common, Project Bread's Walk for Hunger is the longest-running community event in the country that raises awareness about hunger and funds to support programs across Massachusetts that help residents access food!
51 years ago in Boston, a small group of people brought to life a big idea. Hunger was a problem in Massachusetts. And they weren’t going to wait around for someone else to do something about it. So what did they do? They walked.
Their actions made a difference then, and still do today. The people of Massachusetts have followed in their footsteps for five decades to come together in Boston on the first Sunday of May. Every year, more than 10,000 caring people like you support the Walk for Hunger to shine a spotlight on the issue of hunger, acknowledge and help our neighbors who don't have enough to eat, and raise both awareness and much-needed funds to invest in community-based solutions to hunger.
Through your support of the 50th Walk for Hunger, Project Bread invested $1 million in community programs across Massachusetts.
