2020 Great Food Walk Information

April 10th Great Food Walk Cancelled

Over recent days we have been weighing carefully the health and safety of our entire Great Food Walk community (volunteers, walkers, and friends at the hosting site) with the real and current needs of clients at Loaves & Fishes and Sharing, Inc. With painstaking consideration, we have decided to cancel the April 10th Great Food Walk.

Walk With Us Virtually

In the spirit of community action to help address needs – especially now, in this moment – we are making an appeal for you to take up either a virtual walk or a walk on your own time at a safe place of your choosing between now and Friday, April 10th.

With this energy harnessed we can all still make a difference. You and your sponsors’ donations are most welcome! You can make donations here online or by mailing your donation with your virtual walk sheet.

Whether you walk on a treadmill, a local trail or somewhere else, share a selfie of your 2020 Nashoba Great Food Walk with hashtag #2020NashobaGFW so we can all feel like we’re walking together even though we’re safely distant from each other.

We extend a gracious thank you for your participation and generosity!

Here’s what happened last year. What can we do together in 2020?
