Ride

Why ride?

By riding in WB4F, you demonstrate your commitment in helping more than 211,000 people in Western Massachusetts struggling with food insecurity. Regardless of your age or experience level, you have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those around you and strengthen our community. You’re not just raising funds, but also raising awareness for the problems of hunger and food insecurity in our area

Each year, The Food Bank distributes nearly 10 million pounds of food to our member agencies across Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties. We also work closely with those agencies to strengthen the emergency food network, and help individuals facing hunger access resources to overcome food insecurity.

Our work would not be possible without the support of the community. Through advocacy, volunteering and donations, we are able to efficiently and successfully meet our mission. One dollar donated to The Food Bank provides three meals to those who need them most.

At Will Bike 4 Food, you can pedal towards a hunger-free community. By working together, we can put an end to hunger in Western Massachusetts. That’s what we mean when we say …

Four routes. One destination. A community without hunger.
