They revved their engines then rode, raising nearly $50,000 for Eden Food for Change (EFFC), making this year’s event the most successful to date.
Roughly 136 Riders Against Hunger participants, along with dozens of volunteers, turned up for the 163 km ride beginning and ending at South Common Mall in Erin Mills last Saturday.
The goal: providing healthy food for west Mississauga residents living in poverty.
Fourteen bikers joined the ‘elite riders’ club, reserved for those who raise more than $500.
With the largest motorcycle charity ride in Mississauga, EFFC has been serving residents for more than 25 years via two food bank locations, its Learning Kitchen, and Fresh Produce Box program which is open to everyone.
