Bike for the Bean

Join us for a 45-minute spin ride at CycleBar Livingston as we "Bike for the Bean" on Saturday, July 21st, at 12:30 p.m.!

The Green Bean is a recently-converted school bus that MEND is using to collect and distribute more fresh and healthy food to underserved communities in Essex County, NJ. 

MEND will use The  Green  Bean to get more good food to all!

  • Last year, MEND's interfaith network of 17 food pantries provided supplemental food to over 117,000 people in Essex County.
  • Essex County has the highest food insecurity rate in NJ, at 17%.
  • 37% of those served by MEND food pantries are children.
  • Many of MEND's food pantry patrons are the working poor, or those on limited fixed incomes, who don't have enough to make ends meet due to the high cost of living in Essex County.

A donation of $100 gets you a great ride...and also helps MEND buy fresh produce and other nutritious food for the Green Bean to distribute.
