Bread of Life Walk honors memory of food pantry volunteer Terri O’Brien, of Everett, while fighting food insecurity

Team Terri-2
  MELROSE – Approximately 125 walkers supported the Bread of Life Walk, despite rain, at Pine Banks Park on Saturday. Among others, the Foundation Trust and Dunkin’ (1539 Broadway, Saugus) cosponsored the event. This years event was held in memory of Terri OBrien, an Everett resident and longtime Bread of Life volunteer, who worked in the Everett food pantry and mobile market and was instrumental in developing their Backpack Nutrition Program for Everett Public School students. The funds raised were used directly for programs helping them feed neighbors in need in Everett, Malden and 11 surrounding communities.
