Hazon is a nonprofit working towards a healthier and more sustainable Jewish community — as a step towards a healthier and more sustainable world for all. Chip in and eat up.

The bike ride is held by Hazon (, a Jewish non-profit organization that has been doing some incredible food work over the past few years, educating people across the US about organic farming, sustainable agriculture and food justice. Hazon has created 10 CSA’s (Community Supported Agriculture projects), a Food Conference, and is currently working on food curricula that will teach kids & adults [click here for sample chapters, receive a free copy of the 130-page adult curriculum if you’re a Jewish educator] about a vast array of important topics surrounding Judaism, nutrition and the environment. Hazon’s bike rides raise money for environmental & peace making projects in the US and Middle East. They also fund the CSA’s, the food curricula and the Food Conference.
