The lines at food banks across the country have been staggering. That there are lines at all is both frightening and heartbreaking. Some waited in their car in miles-long lines in excess of 6 hours. To feed their families. Fear is high, nerves are frayed. Having the National Guard providing assistance in some locations no doubt helped maintain order. As just one example, San Antonio’s food bank reported serving nearly 12,000 families last Thursday alone.
