MIAMI – In Little Havana, the line for The Latin Chamber of Commerce holiday food giveaway was already long Tuesday morning.

This means that people will be spending the day and will be sleeping on the street overnight in line, so that they can get free food.

Earlier this month, people camped out over night in front of the Latin Chamber of Commerce, 1417 W. Flagler St., to get the voucher they will be redeeming Wednesday.

Organizers said the food giveaway is worth about $120 per voucher. They have given away about 3,000 vouchers, organizers said.

Miami police officers were helping with crowd control.
