When she heard that health care workers struggled to find the time to eat after treating coronavirus patients, Emilia Jaime wanted to help.

Jaime, a 14-year-old freshman at Robert Vela High School in Edinburg, started Helpers Helping Heroes, which delivers free meals to local hospitals.

She started with a modest goal: Deliver 70 meals.

Her project, though, quickly expanded.

Other teenagers volunteered and they collected $4,700 through an online fundraiser.

So far, they've delivered more than 2,200 meals to six hospitals.
