Boston to Bar Harbor Virtual Challenge

TJ’s Team Joins the Boston to Bar Harbor Virtual Challenge

This is a 6-month, 750-mile challenge to support local New England food banks and hunger relief programs.  We will start our challenge from Boston Common and make our way, city-by-city (the long way), to Bar Harbor.  We start Friday, August 21, 2020.  Follow us on social media to track our progress!

Donations support local New England food banks and hunger relief programs to help people who are in dire need of food. Before Covid-19, 1 in 9 Americans struggled with food insecurity. As a result of Covid-19, food insecurity is expected to double worldwide. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support local New England food banks and hunger relief programs.


What is food insecurity?

Food insecurity describes a household’s inability to provide enough food for every person to live an active, healthy life. Food insecurity is one way we can measure and assess the risk of hunger. In the United States currently one in nine people struggle with hunger.

What causes food insecurity?

One “bad month” can be enough to plunge a household into food insecurity. Layoffs at work, unexpected car maintenance or an accident on the job can suddenly force a family to choose between buying food and paying bills. A global pandemic can dramatically heighten this vulnerability.

That’s why many working families, including thousands of households who don’t qualify for federal nutrition assistance, depend on local food banks to help make ends meet during difficult times.
