Thousands of people lined up in their cars in Dallas on Saturday to receive food from the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday next week. The organization told CBS News the food giveaway was its largest ever to date.

More than 6,000 cars and about 25,000 people were served by volunteers and staff of the food bank during the around five-hour event, Anna Kurian, NTFB’s Senior Director of Marketing and Communications, told CBS News in an email.

The food bank distributed 600,000 pounds of food, including 7,280 turkeys, to families during the “Drive-Thru Mobile Pantry.”
