According to CBS News, the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) handed out more than 600,000 pounds of food this past weekend to 25,000 hungry people.
Saturday’s event was the “largest-ever” food giveaway as described by NTFB. As shown below, aerial photos reveal vehicle lines stretched miles down the street.
Samantha Woods, a Dallas, Texas resident who was waiting in line, told CBS, “I see blessings coming to us cause we all struggling. And I appreciate North Texas helping us out.”
Cynthia Culter, another Dallas resident, said, “I haven’t been working since December, can’t find a job, they cut my unemployment, it’s a real big deal.”
NTFB spokeswoman Anna Kurian told CNN that “forty percent of the folks coming through our partners’ doors are doing so for the first time.”
