CBS News reports thousands of cars lined up on a Dallas street, "stretching as far as the eye can see."
Saturday's food distribution was the "largest-ever" food giveaway according to the NTFB. Aerial footage by CBS News show several lanes of cars stretched miles down the street.

Samantha Woods, a Dallas resident told CBS, "I see blessings coming to us 'cause we all struggling. And I appreciate North Texas helping us out."
