Upcoming Events

We have several opportunities for you this Walk Season to learn more about the Walk for Hunger and become more involved in the work supported by the Walk.

Below, there are two different kinds of upcoming events, Volunteer Days and Walk Talks

Sign up to volunteer at an organization directly funded by the Walk, or come to a Walk Talk to get more information on the history and impact of this event and how to become a more engaged and successful fundraiser or Team Captain. 

 

Volunteer Days

More than 300 community food programs in Massachusetts are supported by the money that people like you are raising through this year's Walk for Hunger.

This year we are offering several volunteer days for Walk participants to engage directly with programs supported by the Walk, and gain a deeper understanding to why the funds you are raising are so critical to ensuring that people in our state have access to healthy food.

Spaces are limited, so sign up early if you would like to volunteer–we hope you will join us!


Dinner Service 

Location: My Brother's Table, 98 Willow St. Lynn

Date: Thursday, March 23, 2017

Time: 5:00pm - 8:00pm

Volunteer Capacity: 15 (open to anyone)

My Brother's Table is the North Shore's largest soup kitchen and has been a place where all people are welcome to gather and share a meal for 33 years. Everyone is welcome at My Brother's Table, whether they are homeless, lonely, poor, or simply have a need for companionship and kindness and they serve two meals a day, 365 days a year. The grant money they receive through the Walk for Hunger helps them put healthy meals on the table for their guests through their medical meals program. Medical meals offer their guests the opportunity to select a healthier option that is lower in carbohydres, higher in vegetables, and use leaner protein.

Volunteer to help with dinner service. You will help serve the meal, wait on tables, speak with guests, clean up, and generally lend a hand in the kitchen.
