As the cost of living continues to increase, some local food pantries are feeling the pinch.
Officials with the Brazos Valley Food Bank say many of the pantries they supply are seeing more people coming in for food.
At the Salvation Army numbers have doubled, jumping from 352 people in January to 673 in March.
The Brazos Church pantry is also feeling the strain. It served 985 people in January, last month 1,146 people needed help.
Some of the smaller pantries are also seeing more people in need.
Officials fear numbers will continue to grow into the summer.
