Seventh and eighth graders learned first-hand about community service at LOVE's Kitchen Friday.
The student council of Northwest Middle School volunteered to serve lunch. Officials say students were excited to be involved.
"In this day and time, it's important that we stress the importance of helping others and trying to be an influence for other people and doing good will," said Northwest teacher Vivian Hopkins.
Hopkins said this is the first time the student council volunteered at LOVE's Kitchen. She said she hopes students continue volunteering on their own.
