The American Red Cross is serious about ending hunger.

With two highly-frequented food pantries in New Bedford and Boston, it’s no surprise that members of the Food Pantry and Cambridge office wanted to participate in this year’s Walk for Hunger.

On May 5, a team of about 12 raised nearly $1,000 for Project Bread, an organization that has worked to end hunger since 1969.

The team and 30,000 others walked the 20-mile route, which starts at Boston Common and goes through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown and Cambridge before ending at the Boston Common.

Project Bread ended up raising about $3.1 million with its 45th walk, which helps support community-based food program that help feed people in Massachusetts - like the Red Cross Food Pantry.
