SIOUX CITY (KTIV) — Thanksgiving is drawing ever closer but before families cut into that turkey they’ll have the chance to help those less fortunate thanks to “Cranksgiving.”
Cranksgiving is the biggest bike-mounted food drive in the world and it’s coming back to Sioux City.
On November 16, participants will gather at the Albrecht Cycle Shop at about noon for a bite to eat. After lunch, they’ll put on backpacks and go out on their bikes to collect food and bring it back. Riders will have until 3 p.m. to purchase at least four food items from local grocery and convenience stores
The dropped off food goes to the Food Bank of Siouxland.
The ride is free, but participants will need a bicycle, a backpack or bag, about $10-$20 to purchase food and a bike lock.
Those who can’t participate can still contribute by dropping off food and monetary donations at the Albrecht Cycle Shop.
Every dollar donated will allow the Food Bank of Siouxland to acquire 13 pounds of food.
