Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger

i Apr 4th No Comments by

On Sunday, May 5th, our team is walking together in Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger.

Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger brings thousands of people to our state’s capital each year to raise money for antihunger programs, and to promote awareness about the face of hunger in our communities. At the 2012 Walk for Hunger, 43,000 people came together and raised $3.6 million!

By participating in the 2013 Walk for Hunger, we are pledging to make a difference in three important ways:

• To help spread the word about the need for hunger relief in our state
• To support and fund both short– and long-term solutions that make a real, lasting difference for those in need
• To show the world that hunger isn’t something to be ashamed of . . . it’s something we can alleviate, prevent, and END.

We are honored to be a part of The Walk for Hunger, and passionate about what we can do when we work together.

By sponsoring our team, you help change thousands of lives across our state. (more…)

Margaret Fuller House Recognized as City of Cambridge Wins National Health Award

i Feb 22nd No Comments by

Cambridge, MA (February 22, 2013)– The Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House (MFNH) was thrilled to be recognized for its health programming and education efforts yesterday as the city of Cambridge received the Inaugural Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Roadmaps to Health Prize.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation’s largest national philanthropy devoted to health and health care, awarded this prestigious prize to only six communities across the country.  Cambridge was chosen for its innovative, collaborative approach in the areas of healthy eating and physical activity; strengthening families; progressive urban planning; and integrating local public health within various City departments, community agencies and the Cambridge Health Alliance.

Standing at the far right, Barbara Kibler, Executive Director of MFNH, poses with city officials after Cambridge receives the Robert Wood Johnson’s inaugural Roadmaps to Health Prize on Feb. 20.

“We were extremely proud to stand beside city officials yesterday and present to a national audience the work that we’ve done together to build a healthy and strong Area IV community,” said Barbara Kibler, Executive Director.

Over the past several years, the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House has worked closely with the Cambridge Public Health Department and with the guidance of the Men of Color Task Force to develop the Men’s Health League—a program addressing health disparities and access to Health care for over 500 men of color. We have also collaboratively designed and implemented diabetes support groups with the Cambridge Community Center and with the guidance of the Public Health Department. (more…)
