Thank you for checking out my page!
I believe that The Food Bank of Western Mass is a really important cause and I’m so excited to be able to use something that I love to raise money for meals for people in need. Food is vital to human survival and having access to it is something a lot of us take for granted. I’ve never been close to food insecurity, but I’ve struggled with some intense mental health stuff and biking has been one of the things that has gotten me through the toughest days, and I’m so glad that I can use it to help get other people through tough times.
Every 1 dollar raised will provide three meals. Every bit helps. Thank you so much!

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.
