Greetings family and friends, This is the last week -ending October 16th - for the 10th annual Bike4Food cycling event that helps feed those in need in our area - especially those who have lost jobs and income or are disabled - by raising funds and awareness for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.
I have passed the goal to bike 200 mi with another 65mi in the past 10 days for a total of 260mi (not much for Tour de France cyclists, but they are younger), and raise $1000. The selfie is my bike and the Connecticut River. Many thanks to all contributors - And a wonderful last minute outpouring of your generosity shot us above the goal to $1,115 - representing 4,460 meals! Huge appreciation for your support to Bike4Food, it is really helpful to those in need in this area! Ash
Will Bike 4 Food
Will Bike 4 Food is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020 and it is going VIRTUAL! This fun cycling event raises funds and awareness for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Will Bike 4 Food invites cyclists of all ages and abilities to pedal towards a hunger-free future. This year you choose your ride. Ride up a mountain, on the trails, or your stationary bike at home.
100% of your donation goes to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts to support their mission to feed our neighbors in need and lead the community to end hunger (unavoidable credit card fees notwithstanding). Every $1 = 4 meals!

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.
