President and CEO Eric Cooper says the first people showed up at midnight for the food giveaway that started at 10 a.m.

“That  just shows how much they need this food,” said Cooper.

About 1,200 families preregistered for Tuesday’s giveaway. Another event is scheduled Friday, but you can’t just show up and get in line. Cooper says you must register online at the San Antonio Food Bank website or call  210-431-8326.

They also need volunteers.
