Families in need are getting food to put on the table this Christmas.

Today the Salvation Army of Central Maryland handed out nearly 2,000 meals to families.

The nonprofit says 2020 has been one of the worst years they've seen need-wise.

"This is an opportunity that we feel as the Salvation Army to bring some cheer and some good things, some warmth, I guess if you will into the lives of people during the holiday season, who may otherwise be looking at an empty cupboard, they may be looking at an empty dinner table, so this is a great opportunity to help bring not just cheer, but some relief to people, and people need relief, they need hope, and that's what we're about at the Salvation Army."

'Rouge Catering' helped the non-profit make this happen. Each dinner box serves four people and contains a lot of food.

That includes a whole turkey, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans with tomatoes, candied yams, dinner rolls and an apple pie.

The Salvation Army says during the pandemic they've helped feed more than one million people in the city.
