A gas station in Baldwin is helping the community not go hungry as many people have been affected by businesses shutting down.

The Baldwin Citgo station has passed out more than 150 plate lunches every day this week to people as they drive by.

Manager Peter Nguyen says it's their way of giving back to the community that's supported them for years.

"I feel like giving back to the community is important because times like this, everybody needs each other. Everybody's been helping us through the 15 years we've been here," explaned Nguyen. "I feel like giving back doesn't hurt us at all and it benefits everybody."
