Thousands of families lined up to receive groceries at a Texas food bank this weekend, some queuing for as long as 12 hours as the on-going coronavirus pandemic continues to inflict hunger and economic hardships on the state.
The food bank distribution event, held by North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) in Dallas on Saturday, saw 600,000 pounds of food given away – including 7,000 turkeys.
It is hoped enough food was given out to feed around 25,000 people.
Photos of the event show thousands of cars backed up in four lines outside of Fair Park on Saturday morning.
NTFB spokeswoman Anna Kurian said the turn out shows that the need for food ‘has certainly increased’ in the state amid the pandemic.
‘Forty percent of the folks coming through our partners doors are doing so for the first time,’ Kurian told CNN.

Dallas is giving away free turkey and there is a line and this is the news they post about it. This is not a true representation of Texas or even anywhere it is just a free food event. The media is so slanted in these days trying to make it look like people are starving in the US and they are NOT! Texas is not even on a lockdown except in El Paso we are all still working as essential workers. I live in Houston and can safely report we are doing fine and wearing our masks and doing our social distancing and business is going on just fine but the media wants to misrepresent an isolated Texas event as and indicator of the US. Watch out for this stuff people. I hope you guys read down to this.
