Students get nutritious food for free

More than 80 students take advantage of free food at East High School in Pueblo.

Many of them say they were excited about the food, all of it was healthy!

A line of students waited for fruit and vegetables like onions, tomatoes, cabbage, and carrots.

It was put on by Care and Share Food Bank, and students had to sign in and list the number of people in their families.

"We're really trying very hard to get people, not only to just provide food for them, but also to eat and cook healthier for their families," said Donna Helms, Program Coordinator for Care and Share Food Bank.

The event was also held at Risley Middle School in Pueblo, and both were only open to students.
