On December 3, San Francisco's cycling community will come together once again for the 6th Annual Supermarket Street Sweep, a charity event to benefit the San Francisco Food Bank. The race brings together all types of cyclists—casual riders, commuters, messengers, competitors, etc.—to help feed the city's hungry by picking up food from various grocery stores around town. This year, there are two ways that you can participate: ride in the race—speed or cargo—or fundraise at Firstgiving. To ride, just show up at Cupid's Span (Folsom & Embarcadero) on Saturday, December 3 at noon.
It's that time of year again—time to but out your panniers or giant bags and pedal around the city for the SF Food Bank. Now in its fifth year, the Supermarket Street Sweep sends riders all over San Francisco to shop for groceries that will go to help the Food Bank feed needy families this holiday season. The totals have risen steadily every year, with last year's riders bringing in a whopping 7,507 lbs of food.
