Seattle Pedaling Relief Uses Bicycles to Combat Hunger

From the good folk at Cascade Bicycling Club

Seattle Pedaling Relief, a grassroots initiative that enlists bicyclists to deliver food to households in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, is expanding to serve more neighborhoods citywide. The bike brigade is also partnering with Seattle’s P-Patch Community Gardening Program to harvest and deliver fruits and vegetables to food banks by bike. Now the program is expanding. Join them for a ride-along. Learn more and sign up at pedalingrelief.org

The initiative has helped 370 households and carried nearly 4.5 tons of food to date. The program had delivered a massive 8,520 pounds of food (nearly four-and-a-half tons) to about 370 households as of Tuesday, June 30.
