Classic cars will fill East Market Street Saturday for the Sunrise Inn Cruise.
The road will be closed Saturday afternoon between Elm Road and Chestnut Street for the show, which runs from 1 to 4 p.m.
The downtown restaurant used to host car shows every summer, but this is first one since 2006, organizers Bobby Miller and Dave Hoolihan said.
Proceeds will benefit the food bank at the First United Methodist Church of Warren.
"I'm a member of that church, and they put in the flyer that they were running low on supplies,'' Miller said. "It just seemed like a natural.''
Registration starts at noon, and organizers are asking for a donation of $3 or more from all participants. A check will be presented at the end of the car show to the church, Miller said.
Dash plaques will be given to all participants and People's Choice trophies will be awarded.
Live entertainment will be provided by DJ Jeff Burke and the band Jones & Company, and food will be available from the restaurant.
Between the spaces on Market Street and the neighboring lots, Miller and Hoolihan said they hope to have 100 or more vehicles.
"We're just hoping for a good turnout to raise money for the hungry,'' Miller said
Sponsors include Advance Auto Parts, Art Effects, B&B Automotive, Buff-n-Stuff, Champion Quick Lube, Gerber Collison & Glass, Positive Images, RPM Motor Sports, Sir Wrench Performance and Ward's Auto Parts.
After the show ends, participants will be invited to take their vehicles to the Warren Community Amphitheatre for Saturday's River Rock at the Amp concert featuring the Eagles tribute band 7 Bridges and Human Nature.
If the event is successful, it could mark the return of car cruises downtown.
"We'd like to bring them back,'' Hoolihan said. "We'll see how it goes.''
