Monte Belmonte – Monte’s March
Since 2010, Monte Belmonte, a radio host with 93.9 WRSI in Massachusetts, has been leading an annual march against hunger in Western Massachusetts. This year, on November 19th and 20th, Monte, Congressman Jim McGovern, and a number of their supporters will push a shopping cart 43-miles, while on the air, from Springfield to Greenfield to raise awareness and funds for food insecurity in the Massachusetts region. Supporters are encouraged to donate money to benefit The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Last year, the event raised more than $258,000.
