Charity Miles


Feeding America is one of 10 charities chosen to pilot Charity Miles, a free iPhone/Android app that empowers people to earn money for charity while walking, running or biking. Participants choose one of the app’s featured charities and hit the streets. The app will track the participant’s distance and they’ll earn money for their charity. Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile—all up to an initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.

Second Harvest Food Bank will receive 65% of revenue generated by the Charity Miles app in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.

For more information, please see charitymiles.org.
