No child should go hungry in America. But millions of kids in the United States live with hunger. No Kid Hungry is working to end childhood hunger by helping launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive. This is a problem we know how to solve. Chefs Cycle provides an opportunity for chefs and culinary professions to spearhead funding for No Kid Hungry’s mission and crucial work to end hunger in America.

No Kid Hungry is a campaign of Share Our Strength, an organization committed to ending hunger and poverty.


With a focus on mission impact, riders agree to a registration fee of $100, and a fundraising minimum of $4,000. These funds will secure accommodations and entry into the ride, as well as support the No Kid Hungry campaign in ending childhood hunger in America.

The earlier you sign up, the more time you have to raise crucial funds above and beyond the $4,000 minimum - and we are here to help! The Chefs Cycle team supports all riders with fundraising resources, strategy calls, event-based fundraising support, and toolkits to master the art of fundraising, including how to host restaurant-based events or promotions supporting Chefs Cycle.

The $100 registration fee will go towards the required fundraising minimum. The fundraising minimum is required to be met by June 21, 2024.


Three nights’ accommodation at The Flamingo Resort & Spa (May 6, 7, 8, 2024).
Additional night(s) available at a discounted rate at participant’s expense.

All onsite meals including numerous rest stops and a lunch stop each day of the ride.
