The Fresh Bite 5K
Ensuring nobody goes hungry is a necessity. Ensuring everyone has nutritious food to eat is our goal. The Fresh Bite 5k is an opportunity for people who love to run or walk to turn out for a cause: making nutritious food available to everyone, regardless of income. Nearly 1,000 families struggling to afford food sought out the Weymouth Food Pantry this past year. With your help, we'll not only be able to make sure everyone's fed, but fed well– with nutritious food that keeps them in school. going to work, or active in their later years of life.
The opposite of hungry isn't full– it's healthy!
The Fresh Bite 5k takes place on Saturday, June 16, at 9:30 a.m. (check-in will be open at 8:30a.m.) at DCR Wompatuck State Park. The trail is a USATF certified 5k and the run will be professionally timed. With the paved trail ready for sneaker and strollers, the day's sure to be a lot of fun.
