Support Gaining Ground in the Ride for Food, 5K Walk for Food, or Off the Beaten Path!

The Ride for Food is a fun, friendly charity bike ride organized by Three Squares New England. For the sixth year, Gaining Ground is organizing a team to take part in the Ride and help us fight food insecurity. 

Over the past decade, the Ride for Food has raised over $3.7 million for local hunger-relief organizations in Massachusetts.

This year, in addition to a 25- or 50-mile bike ride, the Ride for Food is also offering a 5K Walk for Food and virtual Off the Beaten Path, allowing participants to do the physical activity of their choice throughout the summer and fall, as well as an in-person ride or walk on Sunday, October 2!

Participants can choose their preferred activity and join in the fight for hunger relief.

Join us!

Gaining Ground is taking part in the Ride so that we can raise funds in support of the farm’s operations and our efforts to feed more people.

We are looking for folks to join Team Gaining Ground!

We are also looking for donations in support of our crew!
