GARLAND (1080 KRLD) - Lots of families are still in need across DFW and volunteers with Mint Dentistry are doing what they can to help. 

Today, volunteers are prepping for another drive through grocery giveaway. The dentistry team has been handing out boxes of food at locations all across DFW for about a month now. 

"We've donated at our South Arlington location, our Oak Cliff location and our Cedar Hill location twice," says Dr. Field Harrison, owner of Mint Dentistry.

Harrison says he started the giveaway to lend a helping hand to the community, and was blown away by the amount of need he saw.

"We couldn't believe how many people came in, and got there two hours early to make sure that they would just ... get a bag of groceries."

Harrison says last weekend alone, the line of cars to get groceries stretched over a mile long. Volunteers provided a week’s worth of food to about 800 families in DFW. 

"I've been telling people I want to do it as long as there's the need," Harrison says. "And it's amazing that there is such a huge need."

Tomorrow’s giveaway starts at 10 a.m. at the Mint Dentistry location on Bass Pro Drive in Garland. Harrison says the food is usually gone by noon, so he recommends showing up early.
