Welcome to my fundraising page for the 9th annual Will Bike 4 Food! This is my 4th year participating in this special event. It not only raises money for those who are not as blessed as I have been, it also raises awareness at the state and local levels of government.
Although I cannot help every person who needs assistance with hunger related issues, like the boy throwing starfish back into the ocean after they had been swept ashore, I can help a few of them.
"Whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. To him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen." 1 Peter 4:11 (NRSV)
God has blessed me in so many ways. I have a strong body, a willing heart, and generous friends who make this annual ride so worthwhile. Thank you in advance for any support you can provide to help me help the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts to eradicate hunger in our area
May God bless us and those who utilize the services of the Food Bank.

Since 1982, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts has been feeding our neighbors in need and leading the community to end hunger. We distribute food to our member agencies in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties. These independent pantries, meal sites and shelters are on the front lines of emergency food assistance in our region, playing a crucial role helping individuals, families, seniors and children. Every $1 donated to The Food Bank can purchase 4 meals for a family who needs them most.
