The Ride For food

October 6, 2019

Friends of the Centre Street Food Pantry are invited to participate on our cycling team for the 8th Annual Ride for Food on Sunday, October 6, 2019. Riders have their choice of a 10 mile, 25 mile, or 50 mile course. For more info visit our Team Page.

Three Squares New England organizes an annual charity bike ride, the Ride for Food to raise money for local food pantries, kitchens, community farms and food rescue organizations. This is an event that recognizes that hunger is widespread throughout our surrounding community and that community-based non-profits have limited resources to undertake large fundraisers on their own, and gives small organizations the chance to make a big fundraising push.Last year we raised over $22,000 for the Pantry! Thanks to all who rode and who donated to our riders.

Empty Bowls is an incredible community event led by the Ceramics Club at Lasell College.For six months students at Lasell spend all of their free time crafting beautiful, handmade bowls (they invite us to their nightly crafting sessions too!).  It all comes together at a community meal this year on April 12th. Mark your calendars!  


Come choose a handmade ceramic bowl, fill it with delicious soup and sit down for a meal of soup, bread, and dessert. And there is live music, too!
