The weekend didn't stop some local high school students from working hard to help the needy.
The student hunger drive teamed up with the Riverbend Food Bank to sponsor a mobile food pantry at the Ericson Elementary school.
Today they are giving out enough food to feed more than one hundred families in the QC.
The executive director of the student hunger drive says in this economy, it's important to help the community as much as possible.
"On a weekly basis, the Riverbend Food Bank serves about ten thousand individuals. So we need to do our part. We're trying to engage our high school students to become involved and just get the community more aware of what's going on," says Denise Hester, executive director of the QC student hunger drive.
Students didn't just give away food.
People at the pantry took home mouth wash, soap, toothbrushes, and other home supplies.
