WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – More than 200 volunteers took part in ‘Leap Hunger 2020’ Saturday by packaging 80,000 meals.

Rice, beans and mac ‘n cheese were packaged along several assembly lines.

The event was facilitated by Cross Catholic Church and sponsored by the West Virginia Knights of Columbus.

Organizers say the event all came together when they were told who this food truly goes to.
