Pedal for Protein (P4P) is a group ride sponsored by the Presbytery of the Redwoods, Hunger Task Force based in Napa, California.

All funds raised are donated to Northern California Food Banks for local food pantries and one international hunger relief project. Participation helps many grassroots food pantries that are struggling to provide quality protein food such as canned tuna, peanut butter, canned beans, yogurt, eggs and more to hungry families, seniors and children along the Northern California Coast from the Golden Gate Bridge to Crescent City, also including Napa, Solano and Lake Counties.

Pedal for Protein raised over $45,000 in 2019. In its first six years, riders have raised collectively nearly a quarter of a million dollars.
