Each year, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts and its supporters get together for a memorable day of biking to raise money to help neighbors experiencing food insecurity. In 2022 The Food Bank is also commemorating its 40th anniversary, and recognizing 40 years of partnership with local organizations and individuals alike that make its mission possible.
Will Bike 4 Food unites cyclists of all ages and skill levels at the Lion’s Club Pavilion where groups gear up to leave at designated times for a Century (100 mile), Half Century (50 mile), Quarter Century (25 mile), or Family Fun Ride (10 mile). Participants will be provided with caffeine and nourishment before they leave; snacks, water, and supporters along the way; and will return to a lively After Party which includes lunch, beverages, a raffle, and more!
Can’t make the live event for whatever reason? There is also a virtual option for participants to raise money for The Food Bank while riding their miles whenever they choose during Hunger Action Month in September.
Our goal this year is a lofty $250,000 which equates to 1 million meals!
