Why Walk?

For a generation, the Walk for Hunger has been the achievement not of individuals or particular groups, but of an entire community.

The 2020 Walk for Hunger

Supporting COVID-19 crisis relief

In 2020, the 52nd Walk was transformed into a virtual event. The community responded with an outpouring of support to fulfill what has always been the promise of the Walk to help those most in need, raising $1.3 million for crisis relief.

Our legacy

Over five decades of impact

In 1969, Patrick Hughes had an idea; The Walk for Hunger. He put his revolutionary idea into action to catalyze five decades of social justice, grassroots activism, and anti-hunger action in Massachusetts.
