On September 21, a team representing JF&CS Family Table participated in the third annual Ride for Food sponsored by Three Squares New England. Each year this event brings teams from local food pantries to bike together for a vital cause. The spirit of the day is cooperative and festive, and participants share the twin goals of raising awareness about hunger in our communities and raising funds to support designated food pantries. This was the first year that Family Table fielded a team. Our group comprised twelve people including JF&CS staff, Family Table volunteers, and friends and family members. Participants could ride 12, 25, or 50 miles along scenic roads west of Boston. Together, the Family Table team raised nearly $13,000, all of which will be used to provide food and other services to our 400 client families.
