It will take place on Sunday, May 4, 2014. Registration is now open. According to the 2013 Status Report on Hunger released by Project Bread in Novem- ber, more than 700,000 people in Massa- chusetts aren't sure when their next meal will come--a number almost 40% higher than it was prior to the recession and almost 80% higher than it was at the beginning of the last decade. In fact, 16.5% of Massa- chusetts children live in food-insecure households. "Even as the economic situation appears to improve, we see that hunger continues to be an issue for many families across the state," said Ellen Parker, executive direc- tor of Project Bread. "At Project Bread, we continue to work to ensure that every fam- ily has access to the healthy, nutritious food I _,bm,,, they need. Every dollar raised through the Walk for Hunger helps us do that and much more." Since 1969, Project Bread's Walk for Hun- ger has raised much-needed funds for anti- hunger programs as well as served to elevate the face of hunger in Massachusetts. Funds raised help support local food pantries, com- munity-based meal programs, early child- hood and school nutrition initiatives, and improve access to farm-to-table resources.
