FUNDRAISING

Many of our critically-ill neighbors struggle to afford and/or access nutritious food to stay well.

Each and every dollar raised through Ride for the Feast goes directly towards providing healthy meals and nutritional counseling for the people we serve. Our clients never have to pay for these services.

What are the fundraising goals for this event?

In person riders are required to raise $1000 minimum to participate in the ride on May 21, 2021. If you need support with reaching your goal, connect with your Team Captain and Teammates, or reach out to Angie Kelley, Community Engagement Manager, at akelley@mfeast.org.

Move for the Feast participants have a suggested fundraising goal of $250.

Please remember, this event is first and foremost a fundraiser to support our medically tailored meal program so that our clients can continue to
receive lifesaving meals.
