Ten local food pantries are getting a big boost thanks to one local family as they turned a family activity into something bigger.
Mark Wiewel and his sons rode their bikes from Dixon to Savannah in June, raising more than $23,000 dollars along the way.
He says he chose to ride for food pantries because he likes to eat, and everyone needs to, but not everyone can.
With the support of his employer, Western Catholic Union, many more people have the help they need.
"Since we started this in 2006, the WC Bike for Food has raised 92,000 dollars for Quincy area food pantries," said Wiewel.
The Bike for Food collection has already begun for 2013.
W-C-U will match your donation to any of the 10 area pantries- just mention Bike for Food when you're dropping it off.
Here is the list of area pantries where you can make donations:
