A Quick Note on the Walk for Hunger

Just veering away from the restaurant site for a bit to mention Project Bread's Walk for Hunger, which took place this past Sunday in Boston and other communities. It sounds like this year's walk was a big success which is saying a lot because of the rather shaky economy we are in right now. About 44,000 folks did the walk, raising somewhere around $4 million. I was one of the walkers (this was my 9th walk) and I can tell you firsthand that the weather couldn't have been better for walking 20 miles; it was cloudy (but no rain) with temperatures around 60 degrees, and very little wind. Remembering some of the elements I've had to deal with in the past (90-degree temperatures, rain, high winds), this was indeed a relatively simple walk.

Even though the Walk for Hunger is over, there is plenty that can still be done to help people out via Project Bread. Please check out the links below.

For information on the prevention of hunger:

For community-based information:

For donating:

In addition to the categories above, Project Bread has much more information on their site on a variety of topics and issues; they can all be accessed at http://www.projectbread.org.

Congratulations to all those who walked, and let's hope for equally good weather next year!
