Twelve years ago, BWorks volunteers envisioned an annual event that would give back to the same St. Louis community that supports our work with area youth. A canned food drive seemed like a good idea given the time of year – near Thanksgiving.
Since then, the event – known as Cranksgiving – has steadily grown. In 2006 we collected 200 food items, and in 2016 more than 900 participants collected over 18,000 food items, riding from grocery store to grocery store and purchasing food items to be donated. All told, over the years, participants have collected more than 80,000 items.
Won’t you join us for the 2017 version? It’s set for Sunday, Nov. 5. The fun begins that morning at The Tap Room and will benefit Food Outreach.
