Siouxland students help to feed those in need - KTIV News 4 Sioux City IA: News, Weather and Sports

Siouxland students are roll up their sleeves to feed the needy


Bishop Heelan elementary and high school students packed more than 20,000 bags of food or 125,000 meals to send to people in Honduras.

The bags were filled with enriched rice, dehydrated vegetables, and various seasonings.

One student says their work today can make a big difference to those in need.

"I hope that they get this.  Just that it makes their lives easier and better, better than what they are right now.  As long as we help them and it makes their lives better, I'll be happy," said Andrew Puetz, sophomore.

Besides filling up the bags, students weighed, sealed, and boxed them up.

A project organizer says one bag of food can go a long way.
