Dallas Food Pantries Feel the Pinch

The Dallas Morning News reports that faith-based food pantries in the Dallas area are facing record numbers of newly hungry just as donations and food supplies are starting to run dry.

"We're seeing a lot of first-time individuals – people who never thought they would need benevolence," says the pastor of one such pantry, Cornerstone Baptist Church in South Dallas. "They've lost their jobs or just can't make ends meet."
