Third Annual Milk Ride
On Saturday morning, October 26, members of WhiteWave’s leadership team hosted a bike ride in Boulder to benefit Community Food Share (CFS), a hunger relief organization that provides more than seven million meals each year to those in need in Boulder and Broomfield, Colo. Counties. For every WhiteWave employee who joined the ride, the company made a cash donation to CFS.
The WhiteWave team consisted of 15 cyclists, and the group donated $400 to CFS to help provide 1,600 meals to those in need in Boulder and Broomfield, Colo. Nice work, cyclists!
