“Unlike curing cancer or heart disease, we already know how to beat hunger: food.” -Mario Batali
Donating over 4,000,000 pounds of food annually, utilizing 11,000 volunteers and serving more than 250,000 individuals, our 17 partners strive to reduce food insecurity and keep hunger at bay among our neighbors.
Funds raised through the Ride for Food strengthen each organization’s ability to help provide food for our neighbors in need.
According to the Greater Boston Food Bank
One in ten people in Massachusetts struggle to put food on the table.
Approximately one-third of those in need are children.
49% of households receiving food assistance earn a household income of $1,000 or less monthly
Use of food pantries has steadily increased over the last decade.
