I'M ENDING CHILDHOOD HUNGER IN AMERICA — AND YOU CAN HELP

DONATE TO MY RIDE HERE: 

CLICK TO DONATE TO TONY'S CHEF CYCLE RIDE

 

No child in America should grow up hungry. But too many kids in our country don't have the food they need to thrive.

I'm helping end childhood hunger in America by riding 300 miles in three days with Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry. For the past three years, Chefs Cycle has engaged culinary talents who want to push their physical limits while raising funds and awareness in support of No Kid Hungry. The Spring 2017 ride will take place May 16-18 in Santa Rosa, CA with a goal of 250+ chefs riding to raise $2M.

No Kid Hungry is connecting kids all across the country with healthy food where they live, learn and play. Every $1 you donate can help connect a child with up to 10 meals.

No kid in this country should grow up hungry. Will you help me end childhood hunger?

Beating breast cancer twice during her life, Helen David is an inspiration to those living with the disease.
