The Rainbow PUSH coalition helped some people celebrate Christmas by passing out more than 700 bags of food Saturday.

The coalition first held its regular Saturday morning meeting. Then it handed out the holiday gifts of free food to a big crowd of adults and children.

Rev. Jesse Jackson, who founded the coalition, greeted the recipients. Jackson used the event to draw attention to issues of homelessness and poverty.
