Team Harvest is riding poverty-related hunger out of town

Team Harvest is currently preparing to cycle across the U.S. to raise awareness for poverty-related hunger; and to raise support for Harvest’s programs that lift people out of poverty. We invite you to be part of this great adventure!

 

Our three Champions will begin their trek by dipping the rear wheel of their bikes into the Pacific Ocean in Costa Mesa, CA  Rev. Cliff Melvin and Michael Vincent are riding 841 miles during the first week to Albuquerque, NM. They will be riding with Rev. Scott Alexander, who will complete his 3,457 mile journey across the U.S. and dip his front wheel into the Atlantic Ocean in Amesbury, MA.
