JF&CS is once again participating in this year’s Ride for Food, organized by Three Squares New England. The money raised by the Family Table team will go directly to helping provide fresh fruits, veggies and other healthy foods to more than 500 families served each month by Family Table.
This will be the sixth year JF&CS is entering the Ride for Food to raise money for those who struggle with food insecurity. Cyclists can choose between 10-, 25- and 50-mile routes. For those who prefer spinning to cycling on the road, there’s an option to participate in a spin class and still raise money for Family Table. This year, we’re looking for a team of 35 riders and spinners to help us reach our goal of $40,000.
The cycling routes all start and end in Dedham but will wind through different neighboring towns depending on the route length you choose. The Ride for Food takes place on Sunday, Oct. 6, while spinners can participate in the Spin for Food on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Rev’d in Dedham. The fundraising minimum is $350, but all riders and spinners are encouraged to set a goal of raising at least $1,250 to support Family Table. Participants who achieve that level of fundraising will receive an official 2019 Ride for Food bike jersey. Encouraging friends and family to donate to your ride will bring us another step closer to our team goal.
We also welcome all donations to support one of our riders or spinners. Whether it’s cycling, spinning, donating or volunteering at the event, there’s a way for everyone to help provide food to those in need.
