Welcome to my Walk Webpage!
Ms. Monica L. Matthews
On Sunday, May 5th, I will be participating in Project Bread's 2013 Walk for Hunger. I hope that you will support me in my efforts to raise money to help end hunger in Massachusetts!
Why am I walking? Because hungry families need our help! Food insecurity continues to rise in Massachusetts with over 750,000 people struggling to put healthy food on the table.
The money I raise by walking the 20-mile route will help Project Bread fund hunger relief and prevention through 430 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 61 million meals to hungry people.
Please sponsor my Walk to help me make a difference and reach my fundraising goal. Thank you for your support!
Together we CAN make a difference, protect the individual, and strengthen our community!
About The Walk for Hunger
Since 1969, Project Bread's Walk for Hunger has provided critical resources for hungry children and families in Massachusetts. Today, The Walk for Hunger is the oldest continual pledge walk in the country, and the largest annual one-day fundraiser to alleviate local hunger.
Money raised through The Walk for Hunger funds more than 430 food pantries, soup kitchens, food banks, and food salvage programs in 125 communities across Massachusetts.
The Walk for Hunger is held on the first Sunday in May every year. The 20-mile Walk route weaves through Boston, Brookline, Newton, and Cambridge.
