Families in need got a truck load of free food today (4/2).
42,000 pounds of nutritious food was passed out to the community at Rickards High School.
The distribution was all made possible by PeaceJam, which is a part of the FSU Center for Leadership and civic education.
The organization teamed up with Farm Share and students volunteered to distribute the food.
Sicily Licona, a student volunteer says,"As a community we need to support each other, as a big family we need to help out those in need."
PeaceJam has a Southeast Conference every year around this time. They pick a different organization to work with to help The Big Bend Community.
