2021 Ride for Food – October 3rd
Call for donors, teammates, and town criers!
Dear family/friends/clients (aka my “home”ies),
I am riding my Peloton in the Ride For Food event to support the work of Food Link, an amazing grassroots nonprofit based in Arlington, MA. Please consider donating to support my Peloton Roll or joining us with the activity of your choice!
Make The Ride for Food event whatever you want it to be this year….an in-person bike ride in Dedham or another activity on any date and time! The Ride for Food is a “fun and flexible” charity event and “the ride” is allowed to be any activity.
Please take this opportunity to:
Donate to support access to food! ride.threesquaresne.org/StephanieFord
Tell those around you about the great work of FoodLink and ThreeSquares.
Your generosity will make a difference as we continue to meet the needs of a service area that has more than doubled over the past year.
Food Link has a team of 250 dedicated volunteers serving 50 communities throughout Greater Boston with deliveries of fresh food, 360 days a year. They collect high-quality fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, bread, and prepared foods that would otherwise be wasted from 107 grocery and prepared-food stores and delivers the nutritious food to over 103 social service agencies serving people in need.
Despite the return of some pre-pandemic routines, the effects of the coronavirus on our communities will remain for years: your support of Food Link during this critical time is just as important as ever! It took 10 years for food insecurity rates to return to baseline levels after the Great Recession of 2007; the same lag is predicted for the upcoming years as people’s lives continue to be upended. As they say in sports – it’s a marathon and not a sprint!
Please help me support the important work of Food Link by making a donation through my page. The process is fast, easy, and secure, and your donation will truly make a difference!
Thank you so much for your support… and please don’t forget to share this email with any friends you think might be interested in donating or joining the team!
