      Folks in Lee County got a nice hot meal to help ease the chill.

      On Saturday, First Baptist Church of Leesburg served chili to local people in the community.

      Organizers say this is a perfect way to help bridge gaps within the community.

      J.D. McDaniel says, "we got so many things like race that are dividing the country that we just wanted to be the voice where people can come together and just sit down and talk about what's going on in their lives."

      As a memento, guests were sent home with goody bags filled with canned food items.

      McDaniel hopes to have another event like this in the Fall.
