1 in 10 Massachusetts residents experiences hunger.

There are local solutions: food pantries, meal programs, farm and garden initiatives, food rescue, health center hunger prevention, community supported agriculture, and child nutrition programs.

Every year, Massachusetts walks to fund them. This is the 50th Celebration—May 6, 2018.

As a participant, you will make a difference in hungry people's lives:

Raise Awareness

Send a powerful unified message about hunger

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.

Raise Dollars

Fund programs that prevent hunger

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. 

Raise Your Voice

Advocate for policy change that will end hunger

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.
