Will Ride for Food!
August 20, 2016 LCR joined other bikers in fighting hunger in our community. We helped raise money to put healthy food on the tables of hungry families living in western Mississauga.
The event featured a 163 km route beginning and ending at South Common Mall in Erin Mills, a silent auction, chance auction, sales table and live music provided by Time Trip. Local MP Iqra Khalid kicked off the event and Mayor Bonnie Crombie came to thank the bikers at the end of the day’s activities.
This year, the event saw 14 bikers join the Elite Riders club, reserved for people who fundraise more than $500. Many new bikers came out to support the event, with most pledging to return next year and enjoy the camaraderie of a shared hobby and fundraise for a good cause.
Eden Food for Change has been serving Mississauga for more than 25 years. The organization serves people through its two Food Bank locations, its Learning Kitchen and Fresh Produce Box program and has a vision of Good Food For All!
