As many of you know, Jason is a long-time supporter of Share Our Strength, which strives to end childhood hunger in America through its acclaimed No Kid Hungry campaign.
In 2014, Jason's passion for fitness and strong desire to help children in need drove him to establish Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry with assistance from Share Our Strength. For nearly 30 years, chefs and restaurants have served as Share Our Strength's most ardent supporters raising millions to help end childhood hunger in America.
Realizing this, Jason spearheaded a peer-to-peer fundraising endurance event in which fitness-minded chefs and restaurant industry professionals have banded together to help fight hunger from outside the kitchen.
The 2nd annual Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry ride, which took place in June 2015, saw the participating chefs and culinary professionals pedal 300 miles from New York City to Washington, DC, followed by a cross-country flight to The Golden State so they could ride another 300 miles from Santa Barbara to San Diego.
It was an incredible two-week journey that saw the riders log 600 miles and in the process raise over $325,000 in support of No Kid Hungry!
