Fundraising Minimums

This September, we want to see you as much as possible on social media out in the world enjoying the beautiful western Massachusetts landscape while raising awareness of food insecurity and the vital work being done by The Food Bank. To help encourage a large virtual showing of support, we will be eliminating the fundraising minimum. In exchange, we hope you will tell your friends and help us spread the word!
