RIDE FOR FOOD
Every mile helps a woman in need.
WLP is a valuable community resource that deserves everyone’s attention and support, and I am happy to spend time doing something I love to help raise funds for such a great organization!
I have been involved with WLP since 2009 and am truly honored to ride with them to support our community! WLP shows such compassion and provides for so many that supporting them is truly a blessing. It’s great to know that such a meaningful and supportive organization exists for those of us in need. This ride will put a smile on my face knowing that we are helping others!

No one should ever be hungry, and I want to do what I can to help. With each mile that I ride, I know that it helps a woman in need. We hope to raise $35K in celebration of WLP’s 35th year. I love the WLP’s mission and am excited to raise awareness and funds to support women who are experiencing homelessness and poverty.
Food insecurity is a growing problem across the country. Often folks have to decide between paying rent/bills or eating. This year, I’m participating in the Ride for Food with a goal of raising $1,000 for Women’s Lunch Place. We serve some of the most marginalized women in the Boston area, and not just with food. WLP offers a safe community for ladies to eat, shower, do laundry, participate in classes, make art, access medical services, and meet with wonderful advocates to work on housing, legal, and a host of other issues. I would very much appreciate your support, via donation or sharing. Every bit helps.
I am doing the ride to raise awareness for hunger and help these women get on their feet. With such a small effort on my part we can have a large impact on the individuals as well as the community.

Happy to ride for the second year in a row to support WLP’s Healthy Meals Program. Women’s Lunch Place cares for Boston’s most vulnerable women with dignity, fosters their resilience and empowers them to pursue their dreams. I ride to support our guests knowing each mile will help a woman in need.
I believe in the dignity, safety, hope, and acceptance that WLP offers to its ladies. I am grateful to be a part of the team!
I have been doing at least one charity ride a year since 2000, including for HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, Bikes not Bombs, Phinney’s Friends, and many others. I was looking to support a Women’s oriented cause this year and my friend Jenny and I came upon the ride for food and the Women’s Lunch place, and read about your programs and mission. I’m glad to support this critical organization.
This is my second-year riding for this great cause and my goal is to raise $3,000. I encourage you to donate, donate, donate. It is only made possible by you…without your generous donations I’m just a girl on a bike, but with your help, I become a hunger fighting force to be reckoned with!
I’m thrilled to say that I will be riding for the Women’s Lunch Place for the second year in a row! I will admit that I haven’t trained for the ride, but I will do my best to finish the ride because our BEAUTIFUL LADIES at WLP motivate me to continue fighting the stigma around homelessness, poverty, addiction, racism, and gender violence. Please support my ride.
WLP Board of Directors
I’m so excited to have the opportunity to ride in support of The Women’s Lunch Place. This amazing organization provides deeply needed services to Boston’s most vulnerable women, and it is an honor to ride on their behalf!
No one in this country should ever go hungry and the WLP does their part daily to make sure that does not happen. I’ve supported my favorite organization over the years and my goal is to do my best starting with this great event and ride 50 miles in support of the WLP!
As an avid cyclist, once I heard about the bike ride and what it supports,
it was a no brainer. Count me in!
I am excited to ride for the Women’s Lunch Place because they bring dignity and nourishment to women in need. Many of us will need a leg up at some point in our lives, and WLP provides just that! Plus, I love to bike! It’s great to be able to bike and do good at the same time.
I am riding because I am a legal aid lawyer who defends people every day from eviction from their home. They are facing eviction not because they have done anything wrong, but because they are poor, and they cannot afford the rent. Instead of recognizing the structural unfairness of our system, our society continues to blame people for their poverty. Women’s Lunch Place is one of those essential places that recognizes the humanity as well as the needs of poor women. We have the means to solve the problem, we just need the will. Please support my ride.
