2015 Ride for Food
SAVE THE DATE: SUNDAY SEPT. 20, 2015 IS THE 4TH ANNUAL RIDE FOR FOOD
We hope that you have marked your calendar for the 2015 Three Squares New England Ride for Food on September 20, 2015.
The Ride for Food is up and running and you can now register online. Click on the “Register to Ride” button and then on the “Join a team” button and select “Dedham Food Pantry” from the drop down menu. Take some time to look around the website.
We are off to a good start. Dedham Savings has donated $1,000 and Needham Bank has donated $417 (their donation was split among a few teams).
Four things to keep in mind:
- First, please join us at Whole Foods Market Dedham on April 23 for Shop for a Cause. 5% of all the proceeds from shopping that day are donated to Three Squares New England, the non-profit organizer of the Ride. Whole Foods is a great partner. Please support us by supporting them. You can register then and there.
- Second, there will be a raffle with some nice prizes for those who register for the Ride by May 30.
- Third, we will be having a kick-off party at Kings the evening of Wednesday, May 13. There will be a small cover charge and cash bar. We look forward to seeing those we know and meeting those we don’t.
- Last, we will be joining with at least the Needham Community Council Food Pantry for rides throughout the summer, with one ride in June and two in each of July, August and September. These are optional, of course, and should be fun.
We hope to make this more than just a single good day. We are working to create something you enjoy from late spring until the fall. More importantly, we want to have a profound impact on combatting food insecurity in Dedham and the region.
