SAT May 21: Urban Hike-a-Thon for Food Justice on Beacon Hill

Support organizing for food justice! Help us meet our fundraising goal of $5000—all proceeds will be split between CAGJ, Familias Unidas por la Justicia Farmworker Union, and Black Star Farmers, who will be featured as our SLEE Keynote! 

Walk, bike, run, or wheel to key locations in the local food justice movement on Beacon Hill, including Beacon Food Forest, Nurturing Roots and The Station coffee shop. We’ll meet with members of these organizations to hear about their work, and will wrap-up with a garden-planting party at the CAGJ office!

Registration is requested: Sign up here!

We will kick off the Hike-a-Thon at Nurturing Roots where we’ll get the energy we need from their smoothie bar! Hikers can join at the beginning or at stops along the way; we’ll provide a detailed schedule.

Once you’ve registered, get started fundraising! Hikers are encouraged (but not required) to fundraise for Food Justice via GiveLively: We aim to raise $5000 to split between CAGJ, Familias Unidas por la Justicia Farmworker Union, and Black Star Farmers.

Create your fundraising page here, and then start sharing! We ask that all participants contribute at least $20. Raise more for prizes!

  • All registrants will get a CAGJ water bottle!

  • Raise $50 or more to receive a bar of handmade soap
  • Raise $100 or more to receive a our beautiful Food Justice poster
