Description


Since 1969, The Walk for Hunger has been a tradition in Massachusetts. Today, the Walk has become the country's oldest continual pledge walk and the largest one-day fundraiser to alleviate local hunger. On the first Sunday in May each year, more than 40,000 Walkers and 2,000 Volunteers start off from the Boston Common to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors. In Massachusetts, more than 660,000 people do not have enough food to eat. The Walk for Hunger raises millions of dollars for 400 emergency food programs across the state that support families in crisis.
