43 miles to go! Today, we march to fight hunger.

Today, I join my friend Monte Belmonte on a march to fight hunger here in Western Massachusetts.

Over the next two days, we'll push on all the way to Greenfield – roughly 43 miles, as Monte's shopping cart rolls. Monte and I won't be alone. We'll be joined by people of all beliefs and backgrounds, but all together because we share a simple vision.

No one in our community – no one – should go to sleep hungry at night.

Monte's March benefits The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, but this is more than just an organizational fundraising drive. This is the sum of struggles for our neighbors, for people quietly living the fear of not knowing how they will feed their families, and how we come together to do something about it.

Please join me in supporting this annual effort to fight hunger here in Western Massachusetts. Let's be an example for the rest of America.

Don't do it for me. Do it for everyone quietly suffering through hunger in our community.

43 miles to go!
