  •  North Texas Food Bank (1+ / 0-)

    Jeffrey Feldman

    serves 13 counties, population of almost 6.5 million people.  

    If we are running at the same rate as the contry as a whole (which I doubt - - we are a little better off economically than average), there are 650,000 people on Food Stamps in the region. Even if it's only half the national rate, that's 325,000 people ON food stamps (not eligible).

    Pitch in, help out, and have a nice Thanksgiving.
