FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A group of students who know what it's like to go without eating has opened a food pantry in Fargo that serves the homeless and other needy people.


The students are members of the Legacy Children's Foundation, an after-school program that's meant to help them earn their high school diplomas and contribute to the community. Most come from refugee families and qualify for free or reduced lunches.

The students order food, stock shelves, follow a budget and recruit others for food drives. They say it feels good to give something back to the community.

Group adviser Mary Jean Dehne says it's about hungry kids serving hungry neighbors.

Fargo takes in more refugees than most American cities, as a proportion of its population, from places like Nepal, Sudan and Liberia.
