No child should experience hunger. Not anywhere, but certainly not among the prosperity of southwest Florida. The sad fact is many children experience hunger in the 72 hours when they leave school on Friday afternoon and their return to school Monday morning. 

The PanFlorida Challenge does more than raise awareness of childhood hunger--it provides an opportunity to help solve the problem. For less than the cost of a single cocktail, you can not only feed but NOURISH a kid for an entire weekend. Powerpack kids have 13 nutritionally balanced meals tucked into their backpacks Friday afternoon.

Only an amazing nonprofit like the PanFlorida Challenge could motivate me to get off the sofa and back on a bike! March 10, 2017, the day of my 59th birthday, I will set out on a two-day, 180-mile bike ride from Naples' gulf coast to Fort Pierce on the Atlantic coast of Florida.

My fundraising goal is $1500. That's more than 325 PFC Powerpacks. Can you help? Contribute the equivalent of a single cocktail ($10) or the cost of a festive night on the town (how much depends on how you party!)--it's up to you!

The Pan-Florida Challenge is for HUNGRY KIDS


Together we RIDE to END Kids’ Hunger - 1 meal at a time.  Our challenge goal is 2,000,000 meals.


Who’s hungry?  Tiny kid’s faces paint the new portrait of Hunger.
