Toni’s Kitchen raised a whopping $28,612 in their annual Battle Against Hunger 200-mile bike ride. This year was the team’s fifth year participating in the ride which starts in Gettysburg, PA and ends in Washington’s Crossing, just across the Delaware River from Trenton. Riders trained all spring and summer for the rigorous route traversing beautiful Pennsylvania Amish country and historic battlefields. This year, Toni’s Kitchen fielded a team of 15 riders and six support drivers to raise these much-needed funds to feed the hungry in our community. Fundraising results this year represent a more than 50 percent increase over last year’s ride. The big check was presented by Bob Blackmar, a founding member of the bike ride, on Saturday, January 26.
“These funds will be support our movement to a more densely nutritious meal for those who are hungry and living in compromised circumstances,” says Anne Mernin (pictured holding the check), director of Toni’s Kitchen. “Serving high-quality food is expensive but necessary. These funds will make a big difference!”
