As a Project Bread donor, you are addressing hunger at its root causes. Not only feeding hungry people today, but working to break the cycle of hunger through access, advocacy, and education.
You are empowering those who are hungry today to provide for themselves and their families tomorrow. And for kids, you are giving them the building-blocks for healthy and productive lives.
We have the food, programs, and resources in our country to end hunger. But not everyone in Massachusetts can access them. Be our partner in changing this, until hunger ends.
Your support can help change lives right here in Massachusetts!
Make a one-time or monthly donation to Project Bread right now by visiting our secure online giving form and be a partner in ending hunger in Massachusetts.
You will receive an email confirmation for your gift, which can be used for tax purposes.
You may also mail your gift to: Project Bread - The Walk for Hunger, 145 Border Street, East Boston, MA 02128.
A Learning & Holiday Giving Project for Kids
Project Bread's Holiday Spoons Project gives teachers and parents a way to teach their students and children about hunger in Massachusetts and empower them to make a difference to help hungry people this holiday.
After learning about hunger and gaining an understanding of what's behind the Holiday Spoons Project, kids can "serve their communities" by decorating and selling wood spoons, and collecting donations for Project Bread that will feed hungry people in Massachusetts. Jordan's Furniture will match donations up to $10,000, so kids can make a big impact in the lives of hungry people this holiday.
Does your company have a matching gift program?
If so, your gift could have double or triple the impact.
Find your employer in our matching gift database, and ask your company if they will match your gift to Project Bread.
