Food pantries globally, nationally, and locally are in desperate need of help. This fundraiser hopes to address the local need, as well as bring attention to the growing problem. 

Western Catholic Union matches donations up to $500 for each food pantry. In order to qualify for the match, donors should write the word “BIKE” on their check, money order, etc.
