Portishead youngsters gave up their free time at the weekend to make meals for the homeless.
Pupils from Portishead Primary School showed off their culinary skills on Saturday, making packed lunches for less fortunate people.
A team of 27 youngsters worked together to make 120 picnic packs, which contained sandwiches, fruit and snacks.
The picnics were handed out in Bristol on Saturday night as part of the Street Life Sarnies initiative.
The packs also included heart-warming messages to cheer up people down on their luck.
