News 8 Daybreak will be at the Resource Center Dallas Food Pantry on Denton Drive Cutoff at 6:30 a.m. on Friday.

Gandolfo’s will cater a limited number of breakfasts for a limited number of early-morning risers who get to the Pantry in time for the broadcast. Rafael McDonnell said he would be there greeting people although barely awake.

On air to host Ron Corning, who’s gay, will be on hand talking to RCD CEO and Executive Director Cece Cox and Food Pantry staff. Corning co-hosts Daybreak with Cynthia Izaguirre.

McDonnell invited the community to join him whether they’re on their way to work, in the neighborhood or just going home from the bars.
