The money raised through Bike the Barns supports The Partner Shares Program, which helps low-income families afford farm-fresh veggies. We are biking to ensure food for every family!

In 2018, Bike the Barns raised more than $46,000 in pledges to help low-income families buy fresh, organic food from a local farm through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Let’s empower more families by raising $50,000 this year!

HOW TO FUNDRAISE

Riders create personal fundraising pages to invite their friends and families to support fresh food for every family. Watch this video for step-by-step instructions on setting up your fundraising page.

 

1. SPREAD THE WORD

Send an email, share your Fundraising Page on Facebook, or mail out postcards! Tell your network about why you are riding in Bike the Barns and how they can help feed families.

2. KNOW THE CAUSE

Partner Shares helps over 180 low-income families afford fresh, organic food, as well as the ability to pay with SNAP benefits. When you ride or donate, you help families buy fresh, local food.

3. SHARE THE IMPACT

$15 provides one week of fresh veggies to a low-income family household.

$60 brings one month of farm-fresh food to a Wisconsin family.

$135 helps feed a family for 9 weeks this summer.

$300 supports one household for an entire growing season!

 

*All fundraising pledges are due by 11:59 p.m. on August 31st to count toward your fundraising prize total. Funds must clear PayPal and checks received in the FairShare Office to count toward your fundraising total. Pledges and checks that are not paid within two weeks will be deleted from the system.
