Pine Village and Walk for Hunger: Project Bread

 

1 in 10 households and 1 in 8 children here in MA do not have enough food to eat. This has long term implications for the health and future of our communities. Project Bread is a statewide anti-hunger nonprofit working to end hunger throughout the state. Project Bread meets people where they are – in community health centers, schools, summer programs, libraries and housing authorities, to increase access to affordable healthy food. Their 51st Annual Walk for Hunger on Sunday May 5th on Boston Common benefits hundreds of community hunger-relief program in MA.

 

A PVP South Street mom of two, Liz Greenhalgh oversees this event that brings together elected officials, businesses and more than 10,000 people from across the state to make a bold statement that hunger in unacceptable in Massachusetts. We have offered to help out by raising awareness for this important issue that disproportionately impacts the Latinx community by sharing event details with the Pine Village community:
