May 19th, 2024 at 9:00am in Forest Park
Join Rachel’s Table of Western Massachusetts to outrun hunger! This year’s 5K race and 1-mile fun walk helps us to race to fill the bowls of those in need! Funds go directly to programs that feed people in Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Counties. Those programs include 760,000+ pounds of food annually donated and delivered, purchased and gleaned, and our Growing Gardens program, where we mentor and support those most directly impacted by food insecurity to grow their own culturally meaningful and desired food!!! Our goal: Nourish Western MA – one delivery, one glean, one garden at a time.
