We walk because we know that hunger is a problem in Massachusetts, and we see the people it hurts. Through the Walk for Hunger, our state-wide community comes together to make a powerful statement that we won't wait for change—we walk for it.
Money raised by participants in 2017 was invested in 263 programs across the state that prevent and end hunger—enough to provide 40 million meals to hungry people in Massachusetts.
Since 1969, our community has come together every year through Project Bread's Walk for Hunger to raise money that will fund and support local programs and solutions to hunger that many of our neighbors rely on.
We know that hunger is a social justice issue rooted in systemic inequalities, and lasting change must happen at the policy level. We are vocal in supporting policies that will bring us closer to ending hunger in our state.
Project Bread's Walk for Hunger is an annual fundraiser and demonstration of Massachusetts' commitment to preventing and ending hunger in our state.
By participating, you are advocating for solutions to hunger, and taking action to create change.
We'll keep you up-to-date and informed about relevant news and happenings through our bi-weekly Action Team news round-up, "The Hunger Advocate", as well as alerting you to relevant policies coming out of DC and Beacon Hill. When necessary we will ask you to raise your voice and take action.
