Location Name: Waterford Estates - The Dock

Neighbors! Let’s unite in fun to serve the food insecure in our greater community!

Celebrated worldwide - Cranksgiving is 1/3 Thanksgiving holiday cheer 1/3 charitable-giving and 1/3 party bike ride🚲 🦃 ❤️ We have the distinct honor of being the only event (so far) in Nebraska for 2021. To learn more about the event’s legacy and see the world map visit

Our event will be a food drive for the Food Bank of Lincoln. Please strongly consider donating non-perishable items on their “most needed” list (see post within event for their list!). Any donation is more than welcome and will be greatly appreciated!

For those that ride - we’ll take a celebratory, slow-roll lap around the neighborhood in honor of the Cranksgiving spirit - all bikes and ability levels welcome (kids included). Route to be posted at a later date but this will be a (very) slow roll around the lake …. riding is NOT REQUIRED to donate to the food drive but is a way to celebrate together as neighbors!

We’ll start & end at the dock parking lot - which will also serve as the event-time collection point for donations. If you’d like to donate prior to the event - ping me to organize a drop-off time. I will have a Lincoln Food Bank donation barrel at my home Monday, Nov 1 until the event.

I’ll tally the items donated and handle drop-off to the food bank on our neighborhood’s behalf.

If you’d prefer to donate directly to LFB for whatever reason, consider this event as your reminder to do so this holiday season ☺️
