The community is pulling together to help feed Tri-State students.

Feed Evansville spent the day putting together food boxes for EVSC Virtual Academy students.

Several volunteers came out to the Bible Center Cathedral on First Avenue packaging up nearly 1,000 boxes.

Organizers say they will go to helping students who are learning from home and unable to receive breakfast and lunch meals at school.

"Theres over one thousand two hundred children on virtual academy that are eligible for free and reduced lunch," says Lisa Vaughan, organizer. "The boxes include items for breakfast and lunch, so theres a packet of tuna, crackers, peanut butter, jelly, loaves of bread, chips, juice, shelf-stable milk, and things of that nature."

Families can get one free box for every student enrolled in Virtual Academy through December 20th.

Feed Evansville distributes boxes every other Sunday at different designated locations.

Just another day in paradise. Temperatures surged back into the low 70's for the first time in a week and a half and with southerly winds finally returning to the region, more warmth is on the way for the Tri-State. In fact, this evening looks nothing short of absolutely gorgeous across the area - by dinnertime we'll have fallen back down to 71°, but only as low as 58° by 10PM. So, if you have plans out and about this evening, all you may need will be a sweatshirt. We'll also remain relatively mild early Saturday morning, especially when you compare Saturday morning's anticipated low of 48° to previous mornings earlier in the week. Brrr.
