Bike Out Hunger is riding again in Mansfield to feed our hungry neighbors.
You love riding and you know you should do some things for those in need. This year’s ride will help fund the weekend backpack feeding program in Mansfield. The children on the reduced or free lunch program during the school week often go hungry over the weekend. In fact, some school districts have nicknamed Monday “throw-up Monday” due to the number of children who come to school so hungry, they make themselves sick eating too much breakfast. We can help end that.
September 19 at 7:30 am for kids routes and 100 milers; 8:30 am for all other routes.
$35 entry fee online and $40 after August 3 online or in person day of (donations above certainly accepted)
