When No Kid Hungry introduced Chefs Cycle, I signed on – in fact, I haven’t missed a ride since the launch. It was appealing because I was seeking a healthier lifestyle – life in the kitchen with limited time for exercise takes a toll. When we climb these hills for Chefs Cycle you realize that the pain endured is making a difference in a child’s life and work every stroke of the pedals. It makes each mile worth so much more.
It was amazing to see everyone come together for such a great cause. We all have such busy schedules and crazy things happening in our venues every day. What we can accomplish united in our industry is setting the tone for our children's future. Hopefully it is also setting a new model on how restaurants are giving back more to their communities than ever before.
People think cycling is a sport for the individual but that could not be further from the truth. Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry is such a powerful event because it creates an environment that requires teamwork within a very personal 300-mile journey. The challenge is very real but anyone who seeks support will find it in unique and inspiring places.
