Amarillo, Texas-It takes literally tons of food and dozens of volunteers to make sure hungry families across the high plains have food to eat this thanksgiving.

The Family Services Center has been giving out food to needy family since they opened their doors this week, seeing about double what they usually see.

The number of hungry families has increased so much over the past few months that the center can no longer afford to buy the hygiene items they were once able to provide.

The center provides food to families year round, but as you can imagine, November and December are the most hectic times.
