ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Congressman Mike Conaway was in Odessa on Monday.

He stopped by the West Texas Food Bank to help some Ector County Independent School District students pack weekend lunch bags.

The bags, full of food, are given to children to take home on the weekends.

"These are food bags being put together that school children here in Odessa will take home on weekends so they'll have food to provide for them.
