71% of the people we serve live in poverty. Nearly half of them have had to choose between buying food and paying for utilities, rent, mortgage or medical care.
On Wednesday, November 6, 93.9 – The River morning host Monte Belmonte trekked from Northampton to Greenfield — a distance of about 26 miles — while pushing a shopping cart (created by the students at Smith Vocational & Agricultural High School) in the name of fighting hunger and raising awareness in the community. This radio-thon event has so far generated $270,000 over the past three years, and this year we raised over $50,000! Thank you to everyone in the community that helped make this amazing day happen.
Joining Monte this year were Food Bank Executive Director Andrew Morehouse and Congressman Jim McGovern!
