Project Bread’s Elizabeth Kent of the North End helped prepare healthy meals at the Pine Street Inn, a Boston-based homeless shelter and one of 430 community organizations funded by The Walk for Hunger.
“It was exciting to see the healthy meals provided to the clients—that fresh fruits and vegetables were a part of their daily menu,” explained Elizabeth, one of the 13 campaign associates who helps organize the community of 40,000 Walkers.
“Experiencing the hard work and dedication of the kitchen staff and helping them was great and led me to think about how important fundraising actually is in order to continue healthy meal programs like these.”
Project Bread is committed to providing people of all ages, cultures, and walks of life with reliable access to nutritious food—because the opposite of hungry is not simply full, but healthy. Registration is now open for the 45th Walk for Hunger on Sunday, May 5th. For details, go to www.projectbread.org/Walk.
