A group of student volunteers walked 27 miles over two days for the 25th annual Journey for Food Justice to raise money for Heifer International.
The walk started at Boston University’s Community Service Center (CSC) on October 1 and finished at Heifer Farm in Rutland, Mass., the next day for the International Harvest Festival. The walkers raised more than $150 so far for Heifer International, a non-profit that provides livestock and resources to people in developing countries. Jessica Depies, community events and education manager at the CSC, said the team will raise more funds after the event.
“It’s a small group,” Depies said. “But us having a good experience, building community, learning about Heifer International and having our own journey was most important.”
