The Friends Of Brookline Public Health Invite Community To Participate In Walk For Hunger, Support Brookline Thrives

678

The Friends of Brookline Public Health invite members of the community to join them and the Brookline Food Pantry in supporting Brookline Thrives by walking in the 2023 Walk for Hunger, hosted by Project Bread.

The Walk for Hunger, a fun-filled three-mile walk, will take place on Sunday, May 07, 2023, at 09:00 a.m. at the Boston Common. Participants will meet at the “Embrace” sculpture at 08:45 a.m.

The Friends of Brookline Public Health are walking in partnership with the Brookline Food Pantry to support Brookline Thrives, a weekend food program that offers free food bags to local families who could benefit from additional food options for their children. Each child’s bag contains two breakfast items, two lunch items, milk, fruit, and snacks for the weekend. Nearly 500 Brookline school children receive these food bags weekly.

The team hopes to raise a total of $4,000, and 60 percent of all funds raised will go directly to Brookline Thrives.
