March for the Food Bank with Monte Belmonte
Each November, the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts with Monte Belmonte lead the March against hunger through the Pioneer Valley. Pushing an empty shopping cart 43 miles from Springfield to Greenfield. Monte is joined by Congressman Jim McGovern, Food Bank Executive Director Andrew Morehouse, and several supporters from the Western MA communities as they raise funds to help provide healthy meals to neighbors at risk of hunger. The community is encouraged to make donations by phone or online to benefit the Food Bank’s mission while Monte and the marchers make their way across three counties. This year, our goal is to raise $500,000 – the equivalent of 1,500,000 meals!
