A message from the Executive Director
These last +16 months have been extremely challenging for so many people at risk of hunger – an average 107,000 individuals every month or a 17% increase over the same pre-pandemic period! We witnessed vulnerable households struggling to make ends meet, disproportionate numbers of people of color hit hardest by COVID-19, and many new visitors to food pantries because they were laid off due to COVID-19. To support our ongoing response to meet more demand for food assistance, we are excited to relaunch our in-person annual Will Bike 4 Food event in September.
I will ride 100 miles again in September and spend the time reflecting on our mission.
Last year, Will Bike 4 Food raised over $204,000. My own goal again is to raise $15,000 (the equivalent of 60,000 meals). I hope I can count on you to sponsor my ride so we can continue to feed more people, more healthy food.
Please take part in strengthening your community by making a contribution online.
Thank you so much for considering this special request to join me in spirit during national Hunger Action Month.
