How the Government Shutdown is Affecting Food in North Texas

As the battle over the spending plan for the fiscal year wages on, hundreds of thousands of meals from the North Texas Food Bank may not make it to families that need them. Dallas Morning News’ Christina Rosales reported yesterday that 10 truckloads of USDA food have been canceled. Another 36 are possibly at risk. The nonprofit food bank is worried that it will fall 305,000 meals short in the next few months. With a lack of volunteers and low food inventory, this creates a big problem for the NTFB.
