VICTORIA, TX (KTRK) -- A photo of two Texas police officers doing some grocery shopping is going viral.

Rebecca Vasquez was in the check out line behind Senior Officer Bryan Knief and Cadet Officer Anthony Vacarro, who had a shopping cart full of groceries.

"It just seemed a little odd just that they were in full uniform and everything," Vasquez said.

She asked them what they were up to and if she could take their picture.

"They actually told me that they were going to be donating the entire basket to a family in need," said Vasquez.

The two officers say they were called to a home Sunday night and noticed the family who lived there didn't have any food. The two cops then decided to help out.

"They just felt the need that they needed to in the kindness of their hearts to go and buy this family food and I just thought it was awesome," Vasquez said. "Of course they didn't do anything like this to get recognized or to be seen. I just happen asked them if it was okay if I put their picture up and now people know that there's good people in Victoria."
