 Two Texas police officers are getting praise after a photo of them buying groceries for a needy family went viral on the web.

The two officers, from Victoria, Texas, were spotted in line at a local grocery store in full uniform with a basket full of groceries.

Rebecca Vasquez was behind the two officers in the check out line.

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

Vasquez then asked the officers what they were up to.

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

Senior Officer Bryan Knief and Cadet Officer Anthony Vacarro were on duty last weekend when they were called out to a Victoria home. The officers noticed the family had no food and decided to buy some for them.

"I just thought it was awesome," Vasquez said.

Vasquez snapped the picture of the officers and posted it on Facebook. Since then the picture has created quite the buzz.

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