Buena Vista Food Giveaway Draws Hundreds 11-24-2010

Officials with a large food giveaway in Buena Vista said “hundreds” of people showed up for a chance at free food on Wednesday.
The Parishioners on Patrol’s annual Thanksgiving Super Mega Food Give Away was expected to draw about 500 people, but police estimate several hundred more than that actually turned out.
The event started at 11 a.m. at the Buena Vista Community Center and people were lined around the block.
The first 100 people were given turkeys and other kinds of meat were handed out to the rest.
Officials told TV5 people began lining up in their cars at 5 a.m. and the food ran out around 2 p.m.
Participants in the giveaway were to show proof of residency and present a valid state ID or driver’s license.
