About 13% of Western Mass. residents are food insecure, a rate higher than any other food bank service area in the state.
For the fifth straight year, 93.9–The River morning host Monte Belmonte will be marching from Northampton to Greenfield to raise awareness and funds for the fight against hunger. What started as a local food drive in 2009 has grown to an event engaging all of Western Massachusetts and has become one of the region’s top fundraising events. Since 2010, Monte’s March has raised more than $100,700.
Joining Monte for his 26 mile walk once again will be Representative Jim McGovern and The Food Bank’s Executive Director, Andrew Morehouse.
Donations can be made the day of the walk by calling The Food Bank, or securely online on The Food Bank’s web site.
