Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt.

Join us for our 10th annual Cranksgiving to benefit Buffalo Food Not Bombs!

Bring a bike (any bike will do), a bag, a lock, a helmet and about $10-15 to buy food. All of the food collected at grocery stores will be donated to Buffalo Food Not Bombs to support their work in cooking fresh, healthy food and serving it in neighborhoods across the city every week to those in need.

Riders will be given a manifest with a list of grocery stores around the city to visit and food items to purchase. Riders will bring their completed purchases to The Foundry.

Families and teams (limit 4 people per team) along with individual riders are encouraged to enter. Being fast is not a requirement!

Trophies/Prizes will be awarded and refreshments will be had at an outdoor after party at The Foundry (298 Northhampton) at 3pm.

The after party is free for riders, but we are asking that non-riders bring 4 vegan non perishable food items to donate or 5 bucks.

We ask that participants please pre-register for the ride. Online registration for the event will close at 12 pm on Friday, November 5; in-person registration will be accepted at the event.

In person registration is at The Foundry and starts at 12pm and the ride starts promptly at 1pm.

We ask that participants please follow current COVID safety guidelines.
