Dallas’ Corner Bakery Cafe Head Chef Cycling 300 Miles to End Childhood Hunger in the U.S.

May 26, 2015

Back to all news
Corner Bakery Cafe’s Head Food Guy, Ric Scicchitano, will participate in his first ever Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry from June 7 to June 9, 2015. In just three days, Scicchitano will bike alongside a cast of culinary stars 300 miles from New York City to Washington, D.C. to help end childhood hunger in America.
 
The only chef from Dallas participating in the charity ride, Scicchitano is one of the top fundraising performers so far. Quickly surpassing his original goal of $10,000 and raising it to $15,000 he’s already on track to provide more than 123,000 meals to children facing hunger in America and help make No Kid Hungry a reality.
 
“I’m always surrounded by great food, both at home and in the kitchen at Corner Bakery Cafe,” Scicchitano said. “But sadly 20 percent of kids in this country don’t know when they’ll eat next. They also deserve to experience the same joy food brings to life, and that’s why I’ve chosen to participate in Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry.”
 
Since 2007, Corner Bakery Cafe has raised more than $1.5 million to help end childhood hunger through No Kid Hungry. Donations can be made to help Scicchitano reach his goal by visiting his fundraising page.
