***NEW THIS YEAR: A 3-mile walk route!***
In 2019, we’re adding a new 3-mile walk route to make participating in the Walk for Hunger more accessible for all. Don’t worry, the historic 20-mile route isn’t going anywhere! All routes begin and end on Boston Common, which will be buzzing with activities for the whole family.
More details coming soon, including live music, special guest speakers and Hunger Solutions Village partners!
Can’t make it on Walk Day? Register to fundraise as a Virtual Walker or support the Walk with a donation.
Always on the first Sunday in May on Boston Common, Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger raises awareness about hunger and funds to support programs across MA that help residents access food. Last year, through your support of Project Bread’s 50th Walk for Hunger, we invested $1 million in 315 community programs across 97 Massachusetts cities and towns.

The MIT Senior Luncheon is organized by the Mayor in collaboration
The MIT Senior Luncheon is organized by the Mayor in collaboration with MIT each year to show the City’s appreciation for our seniors. Over 800 seniors attend this annual event which includes lunch, entertainment, dancing, and a gift. Many seniors have this on their calendar for months.
The event requries a lot of volunteer help to pass out food to our seniors during a seated lunch, and this typically comes from students. Several student groups are not available at the last minute and WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
We need about 60 volunteers for two hours to help serve food on Thursday from 11:00AM to 1:00PM. Volunteers should arrive no later than 11:15 AM for orientation, and the serving begins at 11:30-11:45 AM.
Volunteers will be able to eat as well, so MAKE IT A VOLUNTEER LUNCH.

Can you pitch in on Friday May 31 or Monday June 3? We're in urgent need of volunteers to assist at Furnishing Hope tables at two Harvard dorms for Harvard Move-Out
Can you pitch in on Friday May 31 or Monday June 3?
We’re in urgent need of volunteers to assist at Furnishing Hope tables at two Harvard dorms for Harvard Move-Out Day on Friday, May 31st from 10 am-6 pm, as well as on Monday, June 3rd from 10 am-6 pm at Furnishing Hope’s office in Harvard Square to sort and inventory the home goods that were collected and to put together Starter Sets for families.
We’re delighted that Harvard has invited us to participate in its Move-Out Day, so that home goods no longer needed by departing Harvard seniors can find a new home in the hands of families transitioning from homeless and domestic violence shelters.
Thank you in advance if you can pitch in — your help will make a big difference in the life of local families starting over! (And if you’re not available on Monday, June 3rd but would still like to help with the inventorying / packing, please let us know at email@example.com.)
