I would like to express my appreciation to all of you that are supporting this endeavor.
2009 I bicycled 3,200 miles to raise awareness to the hunger problem faced by
millions of Americans every day. The ride was a success and we did get some
families fed but it wasn’t enough. Today the level of need is far greater but
so is my desire to help my fellow man. Beginning in May 2011 I will once again
be doing my part by bicycling across this great country of ours in an attempt
to get as many people as I can to donate to their local food banks. This trek
will be well over 5000 miles long lasting several months.
It is only together that we as Americans can survive the road ahead!
Pennies for the Hungry - Our Hope
Ken is an accomplished chef and food service professional with over 20 years of experience. One reason for this ride is to try and help some of those who are hungry in America. The plan is simple - set aside a penny jar and / or a grocery bag and for every mile completed drop a penny in the jar and /or for
every 100 miles completed one canned good in the grocery bag. When the
Trek comes to an end take the penny jar and /or the grocery bag of
canned goods to your local food shelf and drop them off. Tell the food
shelf thanks for being there. That's it. Nothing more to do.
If everyone joined with pennies a day
all of our local food shelves could receive a nice cash present, and help keep local
families, children, and elders in our community fed. The concept is
not about us, but it is about what we can do in our communities. Even
when the worst in our life is happening, we can still make a difference
and help someone. America truly is a land of opportunity, and we all
have a role in strengthening our communities.
