Behind the Scenes at the Walk for Hunger
Here's a glimpse behind the scenes! Check out these photos taken by Project Bread staff at 2013 Walk for Hunger tasks and events.
Ready, Camera, Action!
Nicolette Greene and Elizabeth Kent prepare for a television interview in Billerica. The campaign associates have been going out to numerous TV stations to promote the Walk. Check your local public access stations to see if they have a segment on Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger!
Sign Painting Event a Success
Elizabeth Kent, Arielle Jackson, and Jacqueline Martinez help Volunteers paint signs that will encourage participants as they complete the 20-mile Walk for Hunger route. They provided paint to create the 400 hand painted signs of encouragement that will hang along the way.
Volunteering at the Pine Street Inn
Nicolette Greene, Jacqueline Martinez, and Jarred Gould watch as Rodney Brown, morning chef at Pine Street Inn, explains the best way to chop celery. These Project Bread campaign associates helped prepare a healthy meal in the kitchen at the Pine Street Inn, a Boston-based homeless shelter and one of 430 community organizations funded by The Walk for Hunger.
“It was good seeing that the food is all ‘home made’ by the dedicated cooks and volunteers who used fresh produce and ingredients,” explained Jacqueline Martinez. “It’s exciting to see that their approach aligns with our value that all people have reliable access to healthy food.”
Welcome 2013 Campaign Team!
The Heart & Sole team lead prepping his two new team members, Karen Allschwang and Elizabeth Kent, for the busy Walk season.
The 2013 Walk Campaign has begun! Our new campaign associates have completed a week long orientation where they learned about the Walk and the new and exciting work that Project Bread does to effect change in Massachusetts. As always the team went out on a bus tour of the Walk route to familiarize themselves with what our Walkers will experience on Walk Day. Morgan Bleimeyer, this year's Logistics Coordinator, led the tour and imparted to the new associates information about important locations like Checkpoints, Waterstops, the Boston Common, and the Snack Stop at Arsenal Park.
Now that this year's Walk team is well versed in Walk history and details about the route, they are picking up their phones and reaching out to all of our Walkers, Volunteers and Supporters! Look forward to hearing from us, and check back soon for more details on the 2013 Walk campaign.
