For the past eight weeks, restaurateur Ben Towill (The Fat Radish) has been on "A Ride in the Country," biking 4,700 miles across the country. Along the way, Ben's goal was to raise $25,000 for Just Food's Youth Community Chef program and raise awareness about the US food system -- and did an amazing job of both! Throughout his journey, Ben has shared updates accompanied by beautiful photos taken by talented photographer and riding partner Pat Dougherty on his website and Instagram (@benjamintowill), as well as weekly posts for T Magazine. Join Just Food as we welcome him home, thank him for his outstanding effort and achievements, and see images and hear the story of this journey from the man himself. Light snacks and drinks will be served; RSVPs not required but appreciated!
