Six people were the first ones to line up Thursday morning for the Food Finders food truck at RE/MAX's office on East Main Street in Crawfordsville
Six of them were there before 8 a.m.
Each month, Food Finders of Lafayette brings a truck load of food to Crawfordsville. Each month, hundreds of people line up to receive food to feed themselves and their families.
It was during one those stops that Pat Smith, a real estate agent with RE/MAX of Crawfordsville noticed the long line of people.
"The line stretched around the block," Smith said Thursday morning. "We didn't realize the need. We always thought of Montgomery County as a wealthy community.
"We felt we wanted to do something to benefit people who are suffering through this recession."
So, she went back to her RE/MAX office and convinced the other agents and the owners to host Food Finders for the company's annual charity event.
The food was purchased by agents who work in the local RE/MAX office.
