HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- This Christmas Eve, a lot of people are still in need due to the pandemic, and volunteers are out to help.
The City Wide Club's Christmas Eve Super Feast kicked off this morning at the George R. Brown Convention Center, providing thousands of meals to Houstonians in need.
Super Feast is one of the nation's largest food and turkey distribution events, where they served more than 30,000 people who could really use the help this holiday.
Recipients received a frozen turkey, canned goods and other non-perishables.
ABC13's TJ Parker spoke to some of the people who had been waiting in line for hours.
"He's been in and out of work all year. It's been tough," one woman said. "So this is going to help us have a little more food, a little more resources, and get us through the New Year."
"I have two part-time jobs, and it's just kind of hard to pay bills. I'm grateful for Houston and the resources here," another woman in line said. "The food I got at Thanksgiving, I was able to share that with other friends that are having a hard time too."
This is the 42nd year City Wide Club has hosted Super Feast.
