As hundreds flocked to DFW airport this weekend to protest President Donald Trump’s “Muslim travel ban,” several Oak Cliff eateries got to work whipping up tasty treats to feed the hungry crowd on Saturday.

Oddfellows, Emporium Pie, Lucia, Trompo Taco and Dude, Sweet Chocolate all sent over staff members armed with piles of food to keep the crowd satiated during the two-day protest. Food was passed out directly to the hungry crowds, and also delivered to the 100+ attorneys who spent the weekend locked in a “war room” at the Grand Hyatt fighting for access to represent those affected by the ban while simultaneously finding legal challenges to the tenets of the executive order.
