Hunger is a Growing Problem in New England
The Greater Boston Food Bank’s most recent Hunger Study estimates that one in nine residents are at risk of hunger. Project Bread’s 2014 Status Report on Hunger in Massachusetts found that the food insecurity rate has increased by 71% over that past ten years.
While many groups are doing phenomenal advocacy work on alleviating the many underlying and systematic causes of food insecurity (poverty, under-employment and unemployment, etc.), our goal is to raise money and awareness for the organizations on the front lines that are actively providing the good, nourishing food that our fellow residents and their children immediately need to lead healthier, less stressful lives.
We ride to feel good, have fun and give smiles.
