From Texas Public Radio:
The sun rose over the Chihuahuan desert one June morning, and in Presidio it rose to about 200 cars waiting in line.
Dust and sediment, and open landscape uncluttered by trees make up the area. Roads wind through the Cambrian features to Presidio, the speck of a town on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Before the sun rose, long before it, cars began lining up in the gravel and dirt parking lot set between the town fire station and its baseball fields.
“Yeah, they start lining up at 3 a.m.,” said Giovanni Del Bosque, outreach coordinator for the West Texas Food Bank.
At 7 a.m. — the 200 cars sit in the quickly warming air. The drivers, sleep on their faces, wait for Del Bosque to walk her team through the check in process for this drive-through food distribution.
