⁉️ Did you know? 1 in 10 Massachusetts residents can't reliably predict where their next meal is coming from. That's why we're supporting the Project Bread's Walk for Hunger & 5K Run – 50th Celebration this Sunday. It is the oldest pledge walk in the country (that's right, Boston did it first!), and Project Bread is celebrating 50 years of action against hunger. Consider joining the walk or making a donation to Project Bread to help support programs across the state (including support of the Ashmont Farmers Market) that ensure everyone, regardless of income, can access nutritious food all year long!
