One in seven families in Burlington are battling hunger. There is an ongoing need to provide food 12 months a year to the hungry in the community. The individuals that the Burlington Food Bank support are diverse and encompass many people. Hunger doesn’t discriminate! It impacts a neighbour, friend, relative, or co-worker. The Ride to Provide raises funds to allow the Burlington Food Bank to build their program and provide more food to the hungry.

Robin Bailey, Executive Director at Burlington Food Bank said: “We thank the Ride to Provide participants for rallying together to not only support this event but to help the Burlington Food bank provide fresh nutritious food to people in need.”

“The Burlington Food Bank is thrilled with the overwhelming support we received from the people and corporations in our community,” says Norm Crook the Chair of the Burlington Food Bank.

“A fun day was had by everyone and together, we managed to raise $62,000 to help address hunger in our great city.”

Every dollar contributed counts in feeding the hungry in the community. To learn more about the event visit: www.ridetoprovide.ca.
