UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- A lot of meals were made at UI thanks to help from people in the area. It's the Community Campus Day of Service.

More than 1,200 people packed more than 147,000 meals. They'll go to the Eastern Illinois Food Bank which gives them to hungry families in Champaign County.

Everyone from kids, senior citizens and everyone in between volunteered to help the less fortunate. It was the second year for the event.
