LOUISVILLE, KY (WDRB FOX 41) -- On a brisk Wednesday morning, a line of well over 100 people wraps around The Lord's Kitchen near Dixie Hwy. and Standard Ave. For years, this small West End Louisville church has played Santa to hundreds of Louisville families in need.

"We may not solve all their problems, but at least we'll make their Christmas a little bit better this year," says Executive Director Same Watene.

"A little" might be an understatement. In just one day, these volunteers will hand out 500 boxes of food enough to feed a family of four.

"Yes, they can have a nice Christmas meal," says Watene. "We have some stuffing. We have some canned goods. We have also a ham or a turkey."

The Lord's Kitchen is not only feeding families this holiday season, but they're also making sure 750 kids stay warm this winter with brand new coats, hats, gloves, and socks.

"We are doing God's work here," Watene to a roomful of volunteers.

"This really blesses me and my family a whole lot," says Yulanda Jarmon who received donations of coats, food, and even gifts for her kids.

"I'm unemployed and I'm thankful for it. I just don't know what to say. THANK YOU!!"
