It’s that simple! Head to Mount Ashland in Oregon on Sunday, March 28th with five or more cans of nonperishable food. Then, you can ski or snowboard all day for free! The giveaway is part of Mount Ashland’s annual “Ski & Ride Against Hunger Day,” with all donated food going to the ACCESS Food Share Pantry Network to feed the hungry through 24 pantries in Jackson County.

“This is a great opportunity for the community to enjoy a day of fun on the mountain, while at the same time helping families and individuals meet their basic nutritional needs,” said Philip Yates, ACCESS nutrition programs director.

The free all-day lift tickets — good from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 28 — regularly cost $43 for adults and $35 for kids and seniors on the weekend.
