Wakefield resident Bernice Garvey (middle) walked with her friends Lauren Gervais of Groton, Erica Beck of North Andover, Haley Iovaine of Lawrence, and Gayle Edwards of Berlin at Project Breadís 45th Walk for Hunger. They joined 30,000 other Walkers and Volunteers who raised $3.1 million to provide people of all ages, cultures, and walks of life with sustainable, reliable access to nutritious foodóbecause Project Bread believes the opposite of hungry is not simply full, but healthy.
