MEXICO, Mo. (KMIZ)

The owner of Dugout Bar & Grill in Mexico, Missouri, is packing and delivering sack lunches to the community.

Brittney Davidson started delivering lunches on March 23 after her children mentioned they were worried about those who wouldn't be able to eat with school out of session.

"It takes an army and we're willing to be that army," Davidson wrote on Facebook.

Davidson delivers meals from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. seven days a week.

"If you need them, they are free," Davidson said. "They are to help our community in this time of need, adults and children."

Davidson is also accepting donations to help pack the lunches.

"It's a huge eye-opening experience. We're in a small community and helping each other is what its all about," she said.

To make a donation or request a lunch, you can reach Davidson by text at 573-721-8955 or by phone at 573-581-8220 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
