This year’s “Wheels for Meals — Ride to Fight Hunger,” sponsored by Jewish Family Service of Bergen & North Hudson, is set for Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19. Races begin at the Jewish Home at Rockleigh. Bikers can choose from 3, 10, 25, 35, or 50-mile bike routes. There is also a 5K walk. Since its inception, more than 1,500 people have participated, raising over $500,000 to help those in need and heightening awareness of hunger in the community.

All proceeds support the Kosher Meals On Wheels program and the JFS Food Pantry. The Jewish Standard is among its sponsors.
