A message from Monte:

“Thank you all so much for supporting our Food Bank.  They are the hub of the wheel that provides emergency food for the 1 in 8 people in Western Mass who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.  A huge thank you to everyone who donated, everyone who marched, the staff who makes our little endeavors possible and to Congressman Jim McGovern, who made it the whole 26 miles with little to no sweat.  The over $50,000 you gave to the Food Bank will result in the ability to purchase over $450,000 worth of food for your neighbors.”
