Siouxland Cyclists sponsored the annual Cranksgiving food drive, collecting 384 pounds of food and raising $360 for the Food Bank of Siouxland and their 100+ agencies.
“Cranksgiving” is the biggest bike-mounted food drive in the world where participants ride around to local grocery stores to collect canned goods and non-perishables to be donated. This event is a visible reminder for those who encounter the riders that securing food, isn’t always easy.
“There is such a need in the community, especially around the upcoming holiday season. We are so grateful to the Siouxland Cyclists for hosting this fun event year after year to benefit Siouxland,” says Executive Director, Jacob Wanderscheid.
Combined, the Siouxland Cyclists’ donation of food and funds will provide a total of 2,056 meals to our community.
