Drive-Thru Event at Bachman Lake Provides Food to Residents, Census Education

Census Bureau held event in the lowest Census response area in North Texas

2020 Census

The U.S. Census Bureau Dallas Region teamed up with Bachman Lake Together Family Center to increase self-response to the 2020 Census in the Bachman Lake area, one of the lowest Census response area in North Texas.

The drive-thru event was held Thursday afternoon.

Residents attending the food drive received Census information to increase the self-response rates. Representatives even showed residents how easy it is to complete the form in their vehicle.

The Bachman Lake area currently holds the lowest self-response rate for the Metroplex at 19.9%, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Editor's Note: A previous version of this story implied residents would receive food in exchange for filling out the Census, that was never the case. NBC 5 regrets the error and corrections have been made to this article to reflect the true nature of the event.
