The 6th Annual Supermarket Street Sweep

Wednesday, October 26, 2011


The Supermarket Street Sweep is an annual bike race that benefits the San Francisco Food Bank! For the past five years, hundreds of participants have zipped around the city to local supermarkets and brought back thousands of pounds of food to donate to this wonderful charity. The food bank needs support now more than ever as funding cuts have left the food bank struggling to keep up with increasing demand. Read about it here.
