Last year they rescued 9.5 million pounds of food and redistributed to emergency food providers in Metro Detroit.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
