Tuesday, it appeared as
through there would be an even bigger turkey shortage at a Thanksgiving dinner
giveaway in Fort Worth than there had been on Monday, but some Good Samaritans
stepped forward to help out.
So far, about 2,000
people have gone to the Community Food Bank in hopes of a better Thanksgiving.
Monday, because there
weren't enough to give away, only about 400 people of the 1,200 who showed up
walked away with turkeys.
FOX 4 covered the
shortage, and viewers responded with turkey donations so that there would be
enough for everyone to go around.
Tuesday, there was a
line of more than 1,000 people waiting, stretched over a block at the food
bank, and everyone got a turkey.
Some people lined up as
early as 3:30 a.m. Tuesday to get a spot in line.
Officials with the food bank said a sluggish economy and new food stamp rules caused the increase in needy families. The food bank said it expects to serve double the number of families it served in 2012.
