Next Tuesday evening June 29th, join the first ever Spoke & Food event to celebrate summer cycling and healthy food for hungry people! Spoke & Food is a volunteer-led event to promote bicycling to dinner and to engage the community in good works! Bike with your friends and family to and from any of the participating restaurants for dinner and a percentage of your bill will be donated to Solid Ground’s Lettuce Link program. One of the participating restaurants, Dad Watsons, will be donating 50% of the evening’s proceeds to Lettuce Link.
Lettuce Link strives to nurture healthy communities in the Seattle area through distributing fresh, organic produce, seeds and plant starts to low-income families. The program promotes self-sufficiency through gardening education, teaching sustainable food production, and raising awareness about good nutrition and food security. Lettuce Link also coordinates donations of fruits and vegetables grown and harvested in Seattle.
Garett Slettebak, a founder of the event, commented on why Spoke & Food chose to support Lettuce Link: “We were looking for a well-deserving, local non-profit or program whose focus involves food, health, and service. Our planning committee researched a handful of non-profits in the Seattle area who we felt would match up well with and benefit from the Spoke & Food event and the Lettuce Link program landed on top of our list.”
Please join Garett and others and participate in Spoke & Food. Have fun, be healthy, and support a great cause!
