Historic day: No foolin'! 20,000 pounds of groceries serve well over 400 shoppers!
Last Wednesday at the CitySquare Resource Center on Haskell Avenue in inner city East Dallas, our team distributed 20,000 pounds of very healthy grocery products to over 400 neighbors who came to shop.
When I saw the crowds lined up down Haskell almost all the way to Elm Street, I knew we were experiencing the largest food distribution day in our history. I just didn't know how big the day would be.
Our staff worked until 8:00 p.m. to make sure all were served.
Hunger in a city like Dallas, Texas?
