INDIANAPOLIS — People who may have gone hungry on Christmas Day instead enjoyed a delicious meal courtesy of a local restaurant.

People at Kountry Kitchen Soul Food Place boxed up around 3,000 meals for people in need. Some of the meals were delivered to local shelters. Others were available for pickup at the restaurant on North College Avenue.

Dozens of volunteers help make the effort possible.

"At Christmas time there's a lot of folks that still need food, especially with food insecurity, being in a food desert, there are a lot of people who don't have access to food during the holidays," Regina Marsh, a volunteer, said. "We have over 100 volunteers that have come to prepare food, deliver food or just be here for moral support."

Kountry Kitchen also provides free meals on other major holidays.

Volunteers also gave away toys to anyone who still needed them.
