On Sunday, May 4th, I am proud to be joining in Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger.
Every May, over 40,000 people walk all or part of a 20-mile course through Greater Boston, earning the pledges they’ve collected to support Project Bread’s fresh approach to ending hunger in our state. Together, we raise awareness of the reality of hunger in our state, make a powerful statement about our shared commitment to help people in need, and, importantly, raise funds that make it possible to develop, fund, and facilitate much-needed programs—programs that interrupt the cycle of food insecurity in our communities, programs that provide hope.
By sponsoring my Walk, you help change thousands of lives across our state.
For many individuals and families across the state, hunger is a very real part of their daily lives. In fact, food insecurity affects the lives of over 700,000 people in the Commonwealth—almost 40% more than before the recession began. Project Bread responds to those in need in both immediate and longer-term ways: last year, over 400 community food programs funded by Project Bread provided more than 60 million meals to those in need; Project’s Bread Chefs in Schools program works to ensure that vulnerable children get the nutrition they need where they go to school; an innovative program connects famers to urban families so that they can get affordable fresh food. All solutions are focused on strengthening individuals, families, communities—and our state as a whole.
This is YOUR Walk too. Please donate to support my efforts, or join me by walking and raising money yourself: either way you are making a real difference in the lives of people across Massachusetts.
