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.
