|Thanks for visiting our Team’s Walk Webpage!
We are a dedicated group of Walkers and Volunteers who want to make a difference in Massachusetts! On Sunday, May 6th, we will be participating in Project Bread’s 2012 Walk for Hunger. This year’s event is especially important, and we hope that you will support us!
Why are we participating? Because hungry families need our help! Food insecurity continues to rise in Massachusetts with over 700,000 people struggling to put healthy food on the table ? that is 10.8% of our neighbors that need our help right here in our own backyard.
The money we raise by walking part or all of the 20-mile route will help Project Bread fund hunger relief and prevention through 450 emergency programs, schools, community health centers, farmers? markets, community suppers, home care organizations, and other programs that protect the individual and strengthen our community’s food security. Last year alone, programs funded with money from the Walk were able to provide 65.2 million meals to hungry people.
Together we CAN make a difference, protect the individual, and strengthen our community!
