24th Annual Mayflower Marathon
Mayflower Marathon is a 57-hour consecutive food and fund drive that takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving each year. The Foodbank has needed to cancel major fundraising campaigns and events due to COVID-19, but this event is one that can continue to operate in the same safe, efficient model to collect and distribute food quickly to families in need this Thanksgiving.
Last year, this event collected enough food and monetary donations to provide more than 700,000 meals but as Feeding America projects a 50% increase in food insecurity for our service area, and a 75% increase in food insecurity among children due to the impacts of COVID-19 the need is greater than ever.
With 57 hours to participate, giving has never been so easy. Simply drive though and donate; volunteers will be on hand to collect your donations. Foodbank friends who would like to make an impact but cannot make it to either site will be able to donate online, share their impact, and encourage others to do the same.
