Battle Against Hunger


Who we are

Battle Against Hunger - Founded in 2003 by Chuck Inman, a St. Matthew’s parishioner: Over $1.1 million has been raised for Rescue Mission of Trenton, Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK), Arm In Arm and 17 other organizations since the beginning. Each September we typically have over 30 riders and 20 SAG (Support & Gear) volunteers for our two day ride (200 miles from Gettysburg to Washington Crossing), one day ride (up to 63 miles) and one day walk.

Want to help us reach our goal but can't join us for any of the rides? We have ideas that might be perfect for you or your group of supporters!  


Who We Support

In 2019, we are privileged to support the following agencies dedicated to helping those in need:
