Bikers & Non-Bikers

All proceeds from the Ride for Hunger event support Gleaners Food Bank. Ride rain or shine; in the case of rain, the rest of the event will be tented. Donations of non perishable food items are welcome.


In 2003 The Early Treatment Centre Manager Al Newman, held the 1st CBI Health Canada Wide Food Drive. Over the years the food drive included raffles and bake sales. Al Newman’s love for riding his Harley and passion to help families in need evolved into creating the Ride For Hunger motorcycle event.

In 2009 Al Newman partnered with Gleaners Food bank, to hold the 1st Annual Ride for Hunger event in the parking lot at The Early Treatment Centre. The event raised $800 with the registration of 75 motorcycles. Overall the Early Treatment Centre & Ride raised 4372 lbs of food and raised $4100.00. We had sunshine and it was a great start for our New Annual Event.

In 2010, the ride saw an overwhelming demand with registration and had to move to a larger space in order to accommodate all the riders. Market Square, in the heart of downtown Belleville was the perfect location to host the event. The day included a 50/50, Silent Auction and BBQ with Keep it Simple Coffee. The ride was one hour and left Market Square at Noon parading down Front Street and over to The County.

Thank You to our many Supporters and Sponsors!
