RENO, NEV. (KRNV & MyNews4.com)-- Some people wait two hours for a big screen on Black Friday, while some wait two hours for a basket of food.
St. Vincent's Food Pantry will pass out 100,000 pounds of food to nearly 3,000 local families Wednesday in their annual "Feeding Families Food Giveaway."
The organelle goal was 85,000 pounds of food and is a record number of families the pantry has served in one day.
Mayors Bob Cashell and Geno Martini even joined in the annual passing out of the baskets Wednesday morning.
St. Vincent's says 75% of the families receiving food at the event include children.
The holiday food baskets come with a frozen ham or turkey, boxed potatoes, bread or rolls, and pre-made pie shells.
St. Vincent's Food Pantry gave out an estimated 3.1 million pounds of food in 2013.
In order to sign up for the holiday baskets families need be from Washoe County and must by 18 years or older to register.
