Sunny King Criterium & Noble Street Festival Charitable Impact

The Sunny King Criterium is more than just a bike race to the Anniston community, it also provides funding to those a part of the local chapter, Meals on Wheels. The event helps to raise funds for the Interfaith Ministries of Calhoun County. Money raised through selling advertising in the event’s Official Festival Guide helps to fund the annual budget needed for the Meals on Wheels lunch program. The Meals on Wheels mission is to provide a hot, nutritious lunch to our neighbors who are physically unable to leave their homes to shop for groceries and prepare their own meals. Funds raised from the Sunny King Criterium and Noble Street Festival guide help the residents in the local community in the cities of Anniston, Oxford, and Weaver.

“Thanks to the Sunny King Criterium and Nobles Street Festival and its event guide, 52% of our Meals on Wheels recipients receive diet specific meals at no cost,” said April LaFollette, Executive Director of Interfaith Ministries. “With our program delivering over 22,000 meals last year, and being on track for even more this year, this funding is vital. Interfaith Ministries is grateful for the work it allows us to do in our elderly and homebound community.”
