The following was provided by Kate Sullivan, Executive Assistant & Public Relations Associate for Project Bread - The Walk for Hunger.
Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger will be held today.
The 20-mile route weaves through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, to Cambridge, and includes entertainment and free snacks along the way.
On May 6th, over 40,000 Walkers will step out and raise nearly $4 million to help fund hunger relief and prevention through 450 emergency programs, schools, community health centers, farmers’ markets, community suppers, home care organizations, and other programs that protect the individual and strengthen our community food security.
Registration is from 7:00 to 9:00 A.M. on the Boston Common.
