Chef's Cycle for No Kid Hungry

Nearly one in five children face hunger each year. For the 3rd year, nearly 300 chefs will be swapping their aprons for spandex to cycle more than 300 miles to raise money for ‘No Kid Hungry’.

Mary Sue Milliken and Jeff Mahin are taking place in this year's ride.

  • Nearly 1 in 5 kids will face hunger this year, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
  • That’s why for the third year, nearly 300 chefs like us will be swapping aprons for spandex to cycle 300 miles over three days to raise funds for No Kid Hungry.
  • We have a bold goal to raise $2 million dollars – or 20 million meals for hungry kids – all in the name of ending childhood hunger in America.
  • The funds we raise support No Kid Hungry’s work to ensure that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget.
  • This year’s ride will take place May 16-18 in Santa Rosa, California.
  • We need your help to reach our goal! Visit ChefsCycle.org to find a participating chef and make a donation.
