Marching Against Hunger on 11/20

5 students who are planning to participate in the march, one holding a sign asking for supportThis November 20th, teachers Jennifer Luciano and Jessica Vachula-Curtis are aiming to bring a longtime vision they've shared time to reality: GFMS and TFHS students participating in the region's big annual fundraiser for the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts: Monte's March Against Hunger. This will be the 9th year that local radio personality (and Turners Falls resident!) Monte Belmonte is leading a group of marchers from Springfield to Greenfield over the course of two days. Last year's event raised more than $258,000! 

The plan is for GFMS and TFHS students to participate for part of the second day of this year's march as a school-sponsored field trip. Students who participate must return a completed, signed permission slip by October 31 and be eligible to miss classes on November 20th. We will add more details to this page as the plans evolve!

Want to show your support for this effort AND help fight hunger in our region? Our goal is to raise at least $1000 for each of the two teams from GMRSD:
