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.

You are changing lives, restoring hope, and walking toward a better future for all of Massachusetts.

You walked, ran, and volunteered. You donated and sponsored Massachusetts' largest day of community action against hunger. Through your support of Project Bread's 50th Walk for Hunger, last year we invested $1 million in 315 community programs across 97 Massachusetts cities and towns.

You made all this possible:

    • 1.68 million hot meals served at community meal programs
    • 304,589 bags of groceries provided to families at local food pantries
    • 231,400 pounds of locally-grown fresh produce provided to low-income residents through farm & garden initiatives
    • 3,025 emergency food vouchers provided to elders, homeless, and refugees
    • 171,655 pounds of food rescued and redistributed to people in need
You are funding research that will look closley at the causes of hunger in some of our state's highest-need communities. With these findings, Project Bread will be able better inform not only our own work, but serve as a resource for other MA anti-hunger organizations. We look forward to sharing this with you when it is complete! 

You are supporting statewide solutions including expanding support to enroll food-insecure residents and families in federal nutrition programs, giving them stable access to nutritious food in their schools, supermarkets and communities.

Take a look at the full 2018 Impact Report to see how we are advancing efforts to address hunger in Massachusetts—made possible by the 50th Walk! This report also includes a full list of Project Bread's 2018 Grant Recipients.
