A national initiative dubbed “a food drive on two wheels,” all are invited to join Transportation on Saturday, November 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for a bike ride from their home to the Cranksgiving 2021 drop off site: Azlon Plaza, 6100 Merriweather Drive in Downtown Columbia.

    Participants will have a variety of route options to choose from and will be tasked with picking up various food items along the way at nearby grocery stores. There will be
    t-shirts for Cranksgiving 2021 participants, as well as prizes for those who donate the most food items by the end of the event. To learn more and/or to register for this event, click here.
