About The Walk for Hunger
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 to alleviate local hunger.
On the first Sunday in May each year, more than 42,000 Walkers and 2,000 Volunteers start off from the Boston Common to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
In Massachusetts, more than 750,000 people do not have enough food to eat. The Walk for Hunger raises millions of dollars for the over 430 emergency food programs that support families in crisis.
