Battle Against Hunger September 10 – 11

The Battle Against Hunger is a nondenominational charity devoted to increasing public awareness about hunger and raising funds for charity kitchens and food pantries in New Jersey. Since its inception, the BAH has raised over $1,000,000. All funds raised by the riders go to their specific feeding programs.


Toni’s Kitchen is the food ministry of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Montclair. Founded in 1983, Toni’s Kitchen now provides over 52,000 meals per year in a variety of ways to those in need, including in-house sit-down meals, healthy meals served at tutoring or mentoring programs, backpacks filled with healthy food that go home with children in afterschool programs, tutoring, and low-income preschool programs, and outreach meals to local neighborhoods.
