Hunger exists in every country in the world. It’s an urban problem, a suburban problem and a rural problem. Reports show that one in seven Americans rely on food pantries to help feed themselves or their families.

Sometimes people have to make trade-offs by choosing between buying food for their children, paying utilities and rent, or buying needed prescriptions.

At 8:30 a.m. during weekdays people line up outside the Good Samaritans of Garland, Inc., a local food pantry facility, looking for assistance. The organization has clients and volunteers from Garland, Sachse, Rowlett, Murphy and Wylie.
