The Walk for Hunger® is the oldest and largest community fundraiser to alleviate hunger in Massachusetts and solve its root causes! Founded in 1969 by Massachusetts non-profit Project Bread, the event is a celebration of the strength of community, and what we can accomplish when we act together.

Food is our most basic human need. Yet 1 in 11 households across our state are experiencing food insecurity, not knowing where their next meal will come from. 

This is where you make an impact!

People are hungry in Massachusetts. Don't wait for change, act now! 

We need your help to raise $2 million through the 2020 Walk for Hunger to help hungry children and families access and afford enough to eat everyday.
