The annual Feast of Caring meal took place at the Brazos Center in Bryan Wednesday afternoon. Everyone who came out received a modest meal of salad, sausage, rice and beans.
The food was served by local media, law enforcement and community leaders. Participants were encouraged to make a donation benefiting the Brazos Valley Food Bank.
The food bank said they raised 46-thousand dollars from the meal. Their goal was to reach 40-thousand dollars. Last year they raised 56-thousand dollars from the Feast of Caring event.
