MISHAWAKA, Ind. (WNDU) - Preparation is complete for the annual Mishawaka food drive.

On Friday night, dozens of students worked to turn Mishawaka High School's cafeteria into a pop-up grocery store for the 38th year of the annual food drive.

The School City of Mishawaka will be helping 110 Mishawaka families with the gift of food, toiletries and even some clothing.

Students say there was no question that they would help.

"Not only are families getting food and necessary items, it's local families being helped, and they all really need it," senior Daniel Zee said.

"I like seeing the people come in that are less fortunate to be able to buy these things and see their faces light up with all of the variety of foods and just being able to help them," sophomore Caydence Carmack said.

Families can begin picking up the items at Mishawaka High School starting at 8 a.m. Saturday morning. The event runs until approximately noon.
