In the first large public event in Greater Boston since the bombings, about 35,000 people began the Walk for Hunger on Sunday.
Some walkers were concerned about security, and the walk had a larger police presence.
The 20-mile walk benefits Project Bread, an antihunger nonprofit.
The route took participants from the Boston Common to Brookline, Newton, Watertown, Cambridge, and back to the Common.
Pierreline Romain (pictured) danced as she approached the sandwich line in Arsenal Park. Project Bread's executive director said, "When everybody’s back, there’s such a celebratory feeling."
