A Statement About GCG's Response to COVID-19 Learn More
Green City Growers, also known as Boston’s Farm Team, is walking in the Project Bread Walk for Hunger on Sunday, May 3rd! Project Bread is an incredible non-profit that seeks to develop multiple solutions to combat systemic hunger – solutions that meet people of all ages and walks of life where they are in order to provide sustainable, reliable access to nutritious food. As Project Bread puts it, the opposite of hunger isn’t simply full – it’s healthy.
Every May, over 40,000 people walk all or part of a 20-mile course through Greater Boston, earning the pledges they’ve collected to support Project Bread’s fresh approach to ending hunger in our state. Together, we raise awareness of the reality of hunger in our state, make a powerful statement about our shared commitment to help people in need, and, importantly, raise funds that make it possible to develop, fund, and facilitate much-needed programs—programs that interrupt the cycle of food insecurity in our communities, programs that provide hope.
Each day at Green City Growers, we are working to do our part to combat systemic hunger in the city of Boston and the surrounding area. By teaching people to grow their own food in whatever space is available, we are inspiring self-sufficiency and demonstrating that fresh, healthy food is a reality for city and country dweller alike. Because of organizations like Project Bread, the impact of our company, and others like us, are felt by thousands, if not millions!
