TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Project Annie, INC. and the Kearney Center are making sure some of Tallahassee's most vulnerable are fed this Christmas.

It's more difficult this year, with not as many people able to help.

With just eight volunteers, Annie Johnson, the executive director of Project Annie, is prepared to feed 1,000 people.

The Kearney Center is taking dinner on the road.

"We don't have any volunteers in our building, because of COVID we haven't had volunteers for three months now," said Food Services Director Bill Shack.

They're delivering meals to clients, who are now in hotels and apartments due to COVID-19 restrictions.

"We adapt, we have to do what we have to do, but we're still providing a quality meal to them, it's definitely a challenge," said Shack. "But it's something we know isn't going to last forever."

If you or someone you know is in need of a hot Christmas meal, Project Annie will be open from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
