Thanksgiving food giveaway in Texas draws thousands

Vehicles packed the Dallas Cowboys’ American football stadium parking lot and overflowed across a nearby bridge (November 20) as a drive-in food bank in Texas donated Thanksgiving meals to families in need.

An estimated 54 million people in the United States are struggling to afford food during the coronavirus pandemic.

U.S. health authorities braced for further increases in COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations and deaths on Friday, capping a week in which the spread of the novel coronavirus accelerated ahead of next week’s Thanksgiving holiday.

The seven-day rolling average of new COVID-19 cases reached more than 165,000 on Thursday, while the seven-day average for deaths climbed to 1,359, more than any day since late May, according to a Reuters tally of public health data.
