Walks & Concert to Feed the Hungry

To raise funds for our projects, BGR holds annual “Walks to Feed the Hungry” in cities and towns around the US and elsewhere, including Cambodia and India. A BGR walk brings together Buddhists from different communities under a shared purpose: to help people around the world escape from chronic hunger and malnutrition. A walk offers us the chance to express compassion in action in solidarity with the world’s poor. It’s also a great form of exercise and an opportunity to make new friends. We invite you to join us in this effort. You can help by mobilizing the members of your temple, dharma group, or community, urging them to participate in a walk near you, or you can start a walk in your area. For help in organizing a walk, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Each year BGR also holds a “Concert to Feed the Hungry.” The concerts, held in New York, always provide a stimulating evening of contemporary music enjoyed in the knowledge that the event is serving a worthy cause.
