2016 Ride For Food

Friends of the Centre Street Food Pantry (age 14 and older) are invited to join our bicycle team for the 5th Annual Ride for Food on Sunday September 25, 2016.
CSFP is entering a team for the first time!

The Ride for Food is a bicycle fundraising event sponsored by Three Squares New England, an organization devoted to combating hunger in our community. The Ride will take place on September 25th, 2016 and will begin and end at the Noble and Greenough School in Dedham, MA. Participants will have the choice of a 10, 25, or 50 mile route, all of which wind through neighboring towns. 

Our goal is to raise $12,000 to help us provide more than 5,000 pounds of fresh, frozen and canned groceries to the 50-60 families that depend on the CSFP each week. Each team member will be asked to raise a minimum of $250, with a best-efforts goal of $1,000. (This is over and above the registration fee of $75.) Those who raise $1,000 or more will receive the coveted 2016 event bike jersey as a token of appreciation for all the hard work involved in raising money for such an important cause.
Registration is now underway. Go to the CSFP Team Page and click on the Join our Team button. Be sure to register early, as we may be limited to 20 riders on our team!
