On this Thanksgiving Day many Americans will sit down for a large dinner with family and friends. However, during this holiday season, the Food Pantries will be working overtime to meet the need of those who have much less on their table. Diakonia's executive director Claudia Nagle tells Delmarva Public Radio's Don Rush she has seen a sharp increase in demand by families for donated food.
