TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Volunteers with Project Annie are once again stepping up their game.

Annie Johnson, the director of Project Annie, has been feeding families in Tallahassee for decades.

The food pantry teams up with Second Harvest of the Big Bend every second and fourth Thursday of the month, handing out food that will feed 300 people.

Johnson says that both Second Harvest and Project Annie do everything they can to make sure families and neighbors can get by.

"They wanted to give out food and do it at a low-income place," said Johnson. "This was one of them. We are grateful to receive what we can. Very grateful."

Organizers with Project Annie says their food pantry is open to anyone in need.

"We welcome people who are in need, any age, any orientation," said Wendy Wheeless with Project Annie. "We keep food out here on a regular basis. We make sure it is refreshed. It is refreshed every day."

Second Harvest will have another food distribution drive Friday at The Urban League on Bainbridge Road. It begins at 9:00 a.m.
