DALLAS (AP) - As many as 200 federal workers at Dallas Love Field have been treated to hot dogs and hamburgers donated by members of the city's aviation department during the partial government shutdown.

Department spokesman Chris Perry says Friday's free lunch was meant to help federal workers on duty at the Dallas-owned airport but not getting paid. The lunch benefited TSA, Federal Aviation Administration and Customs and Border Protection employees.

Perry says members of the aviation department donated money or food to support the federal workers amid the government shutdown that began Dec. 22.

A grill was set up outside the terminal but inside the airport fence line. Food was provided in a break room used by federal workers on various shifts.

About $500 was donated to help buy groceries.
