The Food Justice Bike Ride was created this year out of our desire to reduce hunger in our community. This year we are supporting The Stone Soup Cafe in Greenfield, Mass. This appeal seeks to raise $3,000 to contribute to the funds needed to continue the ongoing operation of the Cafe this year. The Cafe attracts an average of over 100 patrons per week, many of whom live below the poverty line. The meal served is cooked from scratch and the ingredients are all locally sourced and lovingly prepared by our volunteer kitchen staff. Each weekend, it takes around 30 volunteers to prepare and cook the meal, to set up, serve, and breakdown the dining room, and clean the kitchen. Over 5,000 hours of volunteer time is logged in a year and over 7,500 meals are served. These are big numbers created out of big hearts.
Come ride with us and/or support this very worthy cause.
