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.
