 VICTORIA, TEXAS (KAVU/CNN) - A photo has gone viral in Victoria, Texas, of two police officers and a basket of groceries.

Rebecca Vasquez was behind them in the checkout line, and said, "It just seemed a little odd that they were in full uniform and everything." So she asked them what they were up to.

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

Senior Officer Bryan Knief and Cadet Officer Anthony Vacarro were on duty Sunday night when they were called out to a home in Victoria. When they arrived, they noticed the family had no food.

"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."

So awesome that she wanted to share it with the world. Vasquez snapped a picture of the two and posted it on Facebook. Since then, it's created quite a buzz; hundreds of likes and more than 200 shares, calling the officers a blessing to the community.

"Of course they didn't do anything like this to get recognized or to be seen. I just happened upon them and asked them if it was ok if I put their picture up and now people know that there's good people in Victoria," she said.
