The Walk brings together people from many different communities and cultures - and attracts parents, kids, students, and corporations. But everyone comes to offer hope to hungry people and to support Project Bread’s fresh approach to ending hunger: programs that help to provide sustainable access to healthy, nutritious food to those in need. Because the opposite of hungry isn’t just full, it’s healthy.
Since 1969, The Walk for Hunger has been a tradition in Massachusetts. Today, the Walk has become the country's oldest continual pledge walk and the largest one-day fundraiser focused on alleviating hunger, always the first Sunday in May.
This year, on Sunday, May 1st 2016, more than 40,000 people will come together on the Boston Common to make a powerful statement about hunger in Massachusetts. Money raised from the Walk will be used to develop and fund hundreds of critical programs that provide hunger relief to families and individuals across the state.
In addition to the scenic 10-mile Walk course along the Charles River, this year the Walk for Hunger (no registration fee) will kick off with a 5k ($35-$40 registration fee) starting on the Boston Common.
We value every contribution from every Walker so we don’t set a fundraising minimum. Yet every dollar counts - and can make a difference for a child, a family, an older person. We rely on you, your friends, and your family to raise as much as you can. And if you need help or ideas, we are here at Project Bread to talk to you and give you practical answers.
