The Walk for Hunger | May 1, 2022 | Est. 1969
Hello Dear Friends, Family, and Colleagues!!
On Sunday, May 1st, my son, Adam, and I will once again be participating in Project Bread's Walk for Hunger. The Walk for Hunger - a rite of Spring in Boston - is the oldest continual pledge walk in the country and one of the few walks dedicated to social justice and reducing food insecurity in marginalized communities. This year, because COVID remains a threat and the safety of volunteers remains a top priority, we will not be walking en masse. Instead, smaller groups are creating their own fundraising game plans. As we did last year, Adam and I will be transforming the Walk for Hunger into a “Bike for Hunger” event and will be covering a 20+ mile route on our bicycles. We would really LOVE your financial support!
As many of you know, Adam and I volunteer every month at Family Table, a food pantry supported in part by Project Bread and run by Jewish Family and Children's Service (JF&CS). At Family Table, we pack and then, deliver groceries to those in need. Family Table’s clients include families with kids, seniors living on fixed incomes, Holocaust survivors, survivors of domestic abuse, people living with disabilities, and people who are unemployed or underemployed. We recently started caring for a Ukrainian refugee family.
Adam and I have been volunteering at Family Table and doing the Walk for Hunger together since he was seven years old! He is now eighteen years old and planning to attend Northeastern University next year (and heading to London for his freshman year!). Unsure of whether we will be able to maintain our annual tradition, we’re hoping to make this our BEST year ever in terms of fundraising!
Project Bread is focused on making it easier for people to access and afford food with dignity—money for groceries, healthy meals for kids in their schools and all summer long, support for people trying to make ends meet. They promote legislation that fights historical racism and structural inequities, driving meaningful change to improve food security.
Project Bread approaches this work with the knowledge that people, not food, are at the center of hunger. Through programs and policy meant to get at the root of what causes hunger, Project Bread tackles the systems that create food insecurity, with the goal of permanently solving hunger for children, families, and adults in Massachusetts.

With deep appreciation and best wishes,
Debbie (and Adam)
