"Supporting the local community is one of the biggest missions behind Rockin’ Rods and Custom Rides. By participating, you can help hundreds of families get the food they so desperately need, and have a blast while doing it!", the event's official website reads. 

“The support from this event will provide more than just money and cans of food; it will be putting meals on the tables of our hungry neighbors", said Weld Food Bank communications manager Weston Edmunds, according to the Loveland Reporter-Herald. 

Sterling Rod and Custom owner Eric Leskinen also expressed his excitement in bringing more attention to the food bank through classic cars during the upcoming event -
