Did you know that over 13 million children in the US live in food insecure homes, meaning they don’t regularly have access to enough food? Malnutrition can hinder a child's ability to succeed, both in and outside the classroom.⠀

This heartbreaking reality got our wheels spinning and made us think, how can we work together to help the youth of the future have access to better nutrition? SP2 is teaming up withChefs Cycle to help children receive the nutrients they need. Let's invest in our future and make sure every child has an equal opportunity to be healthy.

What is Chefs Cycle?

For the past three years, Chefs Cycle has engaged culinary talents who want to push their limits by completing a three day, 300-mile ride while raising funds and awareness in support of No Kid Hungry. The spring 2018 ride will take place May 15-17 in Santa Rosa, CA with a goal of 275 chefs riding to help raise $2.4M, which translates into 24 million meals for kids facing hunger. The fall 2018 ride will take place in Charlottesville, VA in September.

What is No Kid Hungry?

No child should go hungry in America, but 1 in 6 kids will face hunger this year. Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. When we all work together, we can make sure kids get the healthy food they need. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength.

How can you help?

SP2 will donate 10% of all purchases that use the promo code CHEFSCYCLE to Chefs Cycle benefitting No Kid Hungry. We will even donate 10% of subscriptions for the life of the subscription.
