The Newton Food Pantry is proud to be participating in Project Bread’s 51st Walk for Hunger & 5K Run on May 5th. The pantry team’s fundraising efforts will directly support the Newton Food Pantry. They welcome adults and teens (ages 13+) to join the team by raising just $100 and walking the full 20 miles or the new 3-mile route. Both the 3-mile and historic 20-mile walk route begin and end on Boston Common, have the same rolling start time, and support the same incredible cause. The only difference is the distance!
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. Last year, the Walk supported 315 local programs in nearly 100 Massachusetts communities.
