Support Gaining Ground in the Ride for Food!

Join the Ride for Food

For the fifth year (after a pause last year because of the pandemic), Gaining Ground is again partnering with Three Squares New England in the annual Ride for Food. Over the last nine years, the Ride for Food has raised over 3.4 million dollars for local hunger-relief organizations in Massachusetts.

This year, the Ride for Food is offering both a virtual “Off the Beaten Path” ride, allowing participants to do the physical activity of their choice (bike, run, swim, walk, hike, kayak, etc.) throughout the summer and fall, as well as an in-person ride on Sunday, October 3, 2021! Participants can choose their preferred activity and join in the fight for hunger relief.

Gaining Ground is riding to raise funds to support our farm’s operations and our efforts to feed more people. We are looking for riders to join Team Gaining Ground, and we are also looking for donations in support of our riders (and walkers and hikers)!
