On the last Thursday of September 2014, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts held its fourth annual Will Bike 4 Food fundraiser. There were 250 cyclists and over 60 volunteers who came together to raise funds for the food bank and spread awareness about hunger. The sun was shining and faces were smiling as these cyclists took off on their 100, 50, 25, and 10 mile journeys. Following their ride, bikers enjoyed delicious food and cold beer, the beer provided by Berkshire Brewing Co.
Andrew Morehouse, executive director of the Food Bank of Western MA, rode his first 100 mile ride. ” I feel great! I feel great because I’m standing” said Morehouse. “We have a vision, and our vision is hunger-free Western Massachusetts, where no one goes hungry and everybody has access to nutritious food.”
