The shelves are almost bare at the Seventh-day Adventist Church food pantry in South-Central Los Angeles. As Thanksgiving approaches, instead of the 400 bags containing a turkey, canned vegetables, milk and other staples typically handed out for the holiday, the charity will be hard-pressed to find provisions for 100 families -- and most will not get a turkey. "I've been doing this for 10 years, and this is the worst I've seen it," said Margaret Carson, community service director.

Today is "Monday Madness," the bank's weekly food grab, where affiliated pantries cart off damaged foods donated by supermarkets and food companies. "No pushing! No fighting! No name-calling!" a food bank employee warns.
