Cranksgiving Mankato 2021

Cranksgiving is a food drive on two wheels. It’s part bike ride, part food drive, and part scavenger hunt. This year’s ride will take place on November 20th.

DESCRIPTION: Try something new for your charitable giving this year! Grab your friends and family and join us for a fun and challenging November bicycle ride around Mankato! This isn’t your average stroll around town…you’ll be collecting food from various grocery stores to benefit the Maverick Food Pantry while competing to win some cool prizes!

All food donations collected will go to the Maverick Food Pantry located on the campus of Minnesota State University, Mankato. The Maverick Food Pantry is the on-campus food resource to help students experiencing food insecurity. Located in Carkoski Commons 142.
