Massachusetts-based organizations and programs making healthy food more accessible and affordable to low-income residents are invited to participate in The Commonwealth.
Empower your anti-hunger organization or program by participating in The Commonwealth—our co-fundraising program linked to The Walk for Hunger!
By forming a dedicated team, you retain 60% of the funds raised, providing direct support to your anti-hunger endeavors. The remaining 40% contributes to our comprehensive statewide initiatives, strengthening the collective fight against hunger. In 2023, 34 anti-hunger nonprofits engaged in the Commonwealth Program, collectively raising over $160,000.
Who is eligible? Organizations and programs based in Massachusetts dedicated to enhancing food accessibility and affordability in local communities. This encompasses a wide range of entities, including food pantries, meal programs, school gardens, and more! Eligible organizations must direct funds toward anti-hunger efforts, supporting initiatives like on-site food pantries, school meals equipment, and Summer Eats programs.
Please note: All Commonwealth teams must hit $500 by June 30, 2024, to be eligible for the 60/40 split.
