A local motorcycle organization helps feed hungry mouths in Coshocton.

The Riders 4 Relief had their Fifth Annual Charity Motorcycle Show and Family Day. The day featured a motorcycle ride, an onion eating contest and local vendors from the area. The event raises money to fill food pantries in Coshocton. Pastor, Martin Granger from New Life Ministries said the food pantry holds a special place in his heart.

"There was times in our lives when my kids were little where we had to use the food pantry and I would like to help people that way, "said Granger.

Chair of the event, Debbie Chilcote says that helping people is a great feeling and the community rallies around the event every year.

"It’s just been a great support for us. Everybody is so supportive of us and without the community we could never do what we do, " said Chilcote.

The community wants to thank ACE hardware, The Warehouse Steak and Stein and All Pro Eating for contributing to the event.
