Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food drive, part scavenger hunt, it has been held annually in New York City since 1999.

Bring a bike, a bag, a lock, and about $15-$20 to buy food. All of the food collected at grocery stores will be donated to the soup kitchen at St Mary’s Church. Every year, we provide close to 100 needy families with a wealth of food during the week of Thanksgiving.

Registration: 12:30pm
