Great American Deli Schlep: Deerfield man visits 42 Jewish-American delis by motorcycle, raising money to fight food insecurity

CHICAGO — A north suburban man traveled 15,000 miles to visit the best Jewish deli in every state – and used his motorcycle mission to fight food insecurity.

Steve Goode spent his summer doing something GREAT. Goode left his Deerfield home behind for 75 days to visit dozens of delis across the U.S.

Goode’s love for motorcycles started as soon as he was old enough to get his license. While away on a trip to California before attending the University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign, his father called to say he sold Steve’s bike.

“I said, ‘You can’t do that!’ He said, ‘Stop me,'” Goode said. “But as soon as I got out of college, I bought a motorcycle and started riding again.”

The 1972 incident wasn’t enough to forge a rift between father and son – they were in business together for nearly 40 years.
