Staffers at Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services (SCES) are teaming up this spring to support the Project Bread Walk for Hunger.
Many SCES staffers volunteer for the event each year, and the agency has fielded walking teams in most years since 2004.
The 48th annual Walk for Hunger on May 1 is expected to draw more than 40,000 people to Boston Common for 5K and 10K fundraising walks. Money raised from the walk is used to develop and fund programs that provide hunger relief to people and families across the state.
Project Bread supports the Greater Boston Food Bank, which provides food donations for the SCES Brown Bag grocery assistance program. Distributing brown bags of groceries on a monthly basis, the program served 562 SCES clients in 2015.
Team SCES is aiming to raise and donate $1,000 to the Walk for Hunger. Donations to support the SCES team can be made through projectbread.org, by clicking here.
SCES operates several nutrition and meals services that help people remain healthy and independent at home. Between Meals-On-Wheels and the Congregate Meals Program, SCES served more than 300,000 meals for clients in 2015.
