No child in America should grow up hungry. But too many kids in the United States – 13 million – don’t have the food they need to thrive.
Dedicated to ending childhood hunger, 11 Arby’s “Meat Pedalers” rode 300 miles in three days during Chefs Cycle, an annual event in Santa Rosa, California, that supports the No Kid Hungry initiative. The Meat Pedalers were among more than 175 members of the culinary community who rode together to raise $1.8 million, which translates into 18 million meals for kids facing hunger.
Over the past five years, Chefs Cycle has brought together restaurant industry professionals to raise funds and awareness for No Kid Hungry through a unique, physically demanding and exhilarating experience.
“Back when I was child, I remember days when I didn’t know what we were going to eat. That’s why programs like No Kid Hungry are so imperative, and it’s also why I decided to jump on a bike and participate in Chefs Cycle.” Jay Johnson, Arby’s Franchisee
