Join NFP’s Walk for Hunger Team!
The Newton Food Pantry is proud to be participating in Project Bread’s Virtual Walk for Hunger. Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger, founded in 1969, is the oldest and largest community fundraiser for hunger solutions in Massachusetts. Our team will be participating in The Commonwealth, a fundraising share program that allows the Newton Food Pantry to retain 60% of the funds raised by our team, with the remaining 40% of funds raised applied to statewide hunger solutions.
We welcome adults and teens (ages 13+) to join our team. The traditional Walk for Hunger has been a 20-mile group walk into Boston. Because of the virtual nature of this year’s event, we encourage team members to get creative. Consider walking 20 miles over 20 days or replace the walk with a family bike ride and try to hit the 20-mile mark over a few weekends this spring. No matter how you plan to “walk”, be sure to reach out to family, friends and neighbors so that they can support you in your fundraising effort.
The money raised by Walk participants, like the Newton Food Pantry, will provide grants to hundreds of community-based programs that rely on support—food pantries, hot meal programs, summer meals for kids, farm and garden initiatives, health center programs and more.
