More than 35,000 walkers will trek through the streets of Boston and neighboring cities and towns Sunday, seeking to raise more than $3 million for programs that help feed the hungry.

Project Bread’s annual Walk for Hunger, now in its 45th year, will kick off May 5 on the Boston Common beginning at 7 a.m. From there, walkers will begin a 20-mile journey through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, and Cambridge.

Project Bread funds more than 430 food programs around the state, including community based meal programs, early childhood and school nutrition initiatives, and improved access to farm-to-table and local food resources.

Walkers will begin on rolling starts from 7 to 9 a.m. and many streets throughout the are will be closed for part of the day. A list of street closings is available here.
