Hundreds gathered Tuesday afternoon for the annual Texas Food Connection Day.

The Texas Farm Bureau teamed up with Meals for the Elderly to celebrate food connection week and today's annual event.

All were invited to enjoy delicious burgers for only 50 cents or a donation of two canned goods, which is equivalent to a $5 hamburger plate.

Local farmers and ranchers provided food for Tuesday's event to celebrate the abundance of food we have in our country.

Over 1,400 hamburgers were cooked at Tuesday afternoon's event.

All money raised benefits Meals for the Elderly.
