‘Tidal Wave’: Hundreds Of Coast Guard Families Show Up To Pop-Up Boston Food Pantry

People gather items for a pop-up food pantry opened in Boston for men and women of the Coast Guard, the only branch of the armed services working without pay.

The group running a pop-up pantry says nearly 200 families stopped in to help themselves to food in the first few hours. Diapers and baby food are in high demand.
