Another resident, a local teacher, said she waited in the long line to get food for her students.
“So I’m a teacher, and several of my students have a need for food and they don’t have the transportation to make it to food pickups… So I go to pantries to keep them fed,” said JaRhondaLynn Cameron.

“It says Dallas really cares about its people and going to feed us, even with a little it, it’s a blessing,” said resident Claudia Frausto.
