New TSD Feature: Pedaling to Prevent Hunger

Must Read

They’re baaaackkkkkk. Cicada onslaught is on its way this spring

The cumbersome bugs rarely do much damage, but there will be millions of them per acre.

Nnanna Njoku embracing lead role for No. 1-ranked Sanford heading into tournament

Star player says he's tried to incorporate some of Villanova's techniques into his game

State expects shipment of one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, maybe by week’s end

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one dose, unlike the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, which need two doses.

Editor’s Note: Wilmington native Justin Field is a 2011 Honors graduate of the University of Delaware and will begin medical school in Philadelphia in the fall. Today Justin sets out on a TSD-sponsored bike ride from Dewey Beach to San Francisco  to raise money for the Food Bank of Delaware, a journey which readers can follow  here at TownSquareDelaware.com. Take it from here Justin:

Thanks guys. For the next sixty days, I will travel across the Delmarva peninsula, over the Appalachians, through the Great Plains, atop the Rockies, and brave the Nevada desert, finally ending in San Francisco, California. I will not spend a penny on gasoline, however –  this trip will be on a bicycle. I’ll be joined by Dean Hansen, a student at James Madison University, from Herndon, Virginia. We’ll travel West, following the path of the pioneers and camping along the way.

In this series I will write about my experiences on the road: the good, the bad, the ugly, the weird, the beautiful, and the not-so-beautiful. Through pictures and words, I’ll show you what America looks like from a bike saddle, as I experience the ups and downs of life on the road.

However, as a future medical professional, I wanted to make this trip more than a leisurely ride through the country, but a crusade for a worthy cause. Throughout my journey I will raise money for the Food Bank of Delaware and awareness of their important work. The Food Bank provides emergency assistance to over 240,000 people in Delaware by working with a wide network of non-profit relief groups. Relying on donations, they help prevent hunger and educate the community in making healthy food choices on a limited budget. Anybody interested in joining this fight against hunger can make a donation at this webpage.  More soon…..
