Free food was given away on Monday afternoon on behalf of the Jim Wells County Veterans Office.

Despite the cold and rainy weather, a line of vehicles waited at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) for their turn to drive up and get food such as bread, drinks, fruits and vegetables, and deserts.

The food was provided by the Coastal Bend Food Bank.

JWC Veterans Officer David Salinas is hoping to bring the food truck to the area for more giveaways.
