Cranksgiving is an event started in New York City in 1999.  By using cyclists to gather food items for area homeless and hungry a new tradition was born:  Cranksgiving.

The Cedar Valley's very own food drive on a bike started in 2009 and is Iowa's longest running Cranksgiving event.

Join us.  All you'll need is a bike, bag, lock, a little money, and a big smile.
