Walk for Hunger

Please join KTM in this year's Walk for Hunger!!  

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 farmers 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.



Here are the details:

The 20-mile Walk for Hunger begins on the Boston Common, and winds through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, and Cambridge before returning to the Boston Common. There is a rolling start on May 4th at the Boston Common between 7:00 A.M. and 9:00 A.M.

Our plan is to meet at Temple Beth Zion (1566 Beacon Street, Brookline) at 8 A.M., take the T to Boston Common, and then walk back in the direction of Brookline (as far as you feel like walking).  But you can also meet us anywhere along Beacon Street.
