Walk For Hunger Raises Over $3 Million To Feed Massachusetts Residents

Joann McPike envisioned a school that offers a top-quality high school education combined with the unique experience of immersion in a multicultural learning environment. From Joann McPike’s vision, Think Global School (TGS) was born. The diverse TGS student body enhances students’ educational experience by introducing young people to different viewpoints and cultures in an environment that fosters open discussion.

Another value held by the Think Global School is service of the community. Recently a 10th-grade student, Yuan Yuan, coordinated the school’s participation in Project Bread’s annual Walk For Hunger.

Walk For Hunger is a 20-mile fundraising walk held each May to raise money for the Massachusetts food banks that Project Bread supports. The event draws more than 30,000 walkers and 1,700 volunteers. In 2013, participants raised more than $3 million. Project Bread directs its funds to alleviating hunger and providing much-needed relief to people impacted by widespread unemployment, home foreclosures, and rising healthcare costs.
