Line for food stretches for miles in central Las Vegas

Updated April 9, 2020 - 9:44 am

Food distribution for Las Vegans in need prompted a line of cars to form for miles Thursday morning in central Las Vegas.

Cars stretched from Rancho Drive, where food was being handed out at Palace Station, all the way past Valley View Boulevard.

Last week there was a line of cars at least 4 miles long for food distribution sponsored by Three Square food bank with the help of Palace Station and a cadre of volunteers.

A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper at the scene confirmed the line was formed by people looking to pick up food as part of an assistance program.
