Tallahassee FL - Around one-thousand people are expected to be lined up for a free Thanksgiving dinner in Tallahassee, but now Project volunteers are worried they may not have enough to feed everyone.

"It's kind of like holding my breath knowing it might happen but I would rather it happen sooner so I could let my breath out," said the founder of Project Annie Inc., Annie Johnson.

Holding on to hope, Johnson, waits for the thousands of donations she usually sees this time of year.

So far, Johnson has yet to see the amount of support she usually does the week before her annual big Thanksgiving dinner.

What started off as just feeding a few families in Tallahassee on Thanksgiving has turned into feeding at least a thousand.
With only a few canned goods donated, it's no wonder Johnson might say she has a few things to get on her list.

As she told WCTV, for sixteen years she's had Thanksgiving and she doesn't expect to stop now.

"No I don't have enough food for them...Oh but Ill get it," said Johnson.

Johnson told us, aside from the food Project Annie could also use the help of volunteers. Johnson told us if you are interested in donating you can drop off any goods, or mail checks addressed to Project Annie Inc. at 625 West 4th Avenue.
