Students at Renaissance Academy in Clarksville packed bags of non-perishable food items for students to take home for winter break.

CLARKSVILLE, IN (WAVE) - On Wednesday, students at Renaissance Academy learned about the meaning of giving back.

Students spent the morning packing bags of non-perishable food to send home with other students throughout the district, who may not have access to winter meals throughout winter break.

The students took inventory and shopped for their peers to ensure each student who gets a bag of food has enough to last until school resumes in January.

Food is sent home with students in need before each of the three school breaks.
