(Memphis) A Mid-South church is doing its part to help those in need.

On Saturday, church members at Riverside Baptist Church served meals to hundreds of people.

Those attending the lunch arrived on buses from three area homeless shelters.

They received a meal and a bag of personal items.

Church members say they are happy to give back to the community.

"It is part of our church mission statement to reach out to the lost and the left behind and to fight on behalf of those can't fight for themselves," says Rev. George Parks.

About 400 people attended the event on Saturday.
