The Ride for Food
Noble & Greenough School (Dedham, MA)
The Ride for Food is an annual bike ride that supports hunger relief organizations in eastern Massachusetts. Each year, we form Team Boston Area Gleaners–a cohort of rider-fundraisers dedicated to gleaning support of our mission. We gather with dozens of other hunger relief teams at Noble & Greenough School in Dedham to bike together through scenic neighborhoods and celebrate over a post-ride feast.
