Somerville Resident Serves Up Compassion at Local Homeless Shelter
(Boston, MA – February 12, 2013) Project Bread’s Arielle Jackson of Somerville helped prepare healthy meals at the Pine Street Inn, a Boston-based homeless shelter and one of 430 community organizations funded by The Walk for Hunger. “It felt great to participate in a real hands-on helpful activity,” explained Arielle, one of 13 campaign associates for the 2013 Walk for Hunger. “The staff and the students were very energetic and informative—teaching us how to choose the perfect lettuce leaves, and other small details that go into the healthy food preparation for those who come through the door.” Project Bread is committed to providing people of all ages, cultures, and walks of life with reliable access to nutritious food—because the opposite of hungry is not simply full, but healthy. Registration is now open for the 45th Walk for Hunger on Sunday, May 5th. For details, go to www.projectbread.org/Walk.
