Join us August 8-16 for our annual Crank Out Hunger bike ride to benefit Coldwater's Food Pantry. We have been able to keep our food pantry open with a few adjustments to the process. Likewise, Crank Out Hunger has adapted by going virtual this year since we can’t gather in large groups. After you register, pick any day between August 8 and August 16 to participate. You can ride on your own, with family or encourage your friends to join you. 

But our long-time supporters will be happy to see that we will still have our three routes to accommodate all levels of riders. You can choose from 25-, 56-, or 85-mile options. The cost is $35 per rider (ages 17 and older). 

New rides for families!
We also have added two family ride courses at Longview and Raintree.
Children 16 and younger are free, but you can order a Crank Out t-shirt for the kids. Anyone 17 and older needs to register.

Don't miss the raffle!
When you register, you can purchase raffle tickets for a $250 gift card from Bike Stop.

After you register!
Packet pick up will be August 8 from 7:30-9:30 am at Christ the Redeemer Church (formerly New Springs Church)
at 1800 NE Independence Ave. Packets will include all t-shirts, ride maps, and a Crank Out coupon with special offers. Watch our website for more info about the ride as the date approaches.

Send photos/videos for a chance to win the drawing!
An additional $250 gift card from Bike Stop will be part of a drawing
including anyone who sends their photos or videos of their ride
to Coldwater August 8 through August 16. #COH2020

Due to the length of this event, this ride will not be supported by SAG stops
and the route will not be marked so please refer to your map.

Covid19 update - Friends Day Food Pantry

Coldwater will have its Food Pantry open on the second and fourth Saturdays from 10:30 am to 2 p.m. and by appointment during the week. Until further notice, we will NOT serve a meal. The clothes closet will NOT be open. 

Food distribution will begin at 10:30 am on these two Saturdays each month and procedures will be modified for safety. We also will still deliver groceries to our homebound on these two Saturdays each month.

Our goal is to allow those in need of groceries access to the food pantry but to keep the potential for exposure to illness to a minimum. 

We do ask that, if you are ill or have been exposed to someone who is ill, you do not come on Saturday to receive groceries or volunteer. If you need groceries, please call our office when you are feeling better and we will arrange an appointment for you to receive them as soon as possible. Volunteers can email to reschedule for another pantry day.

In an effort to keep everyone visiting the food pantry and all our volunteers safe, we may ask anyone who appears to be sick to exit the building. 

We are sorry for any inconvenience and wish everyone good health.
