TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- People are expected to lineup in Frenchtown on Thursday as Project Annie serves up another Thanksgiving dinner.

Annie Johnson started the tradition 18 years ago after she says God called her to feed people.

"I want to do God's work," Johnson explained. "Wherever he needs me, I'll do it."

"I just like to do things for people," said Gremlock Holmes, a volunteer. "I volunteer just to raise some of the kids."

Volunteers were chopping onions and peeling peppers Tuesday in preparation. Gubernatorial hopeful Gwen Graham was among those preparing the vegetables.

Project Annie opens its doors on Thursday, providing free Thanksgiving meals from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They're expecting between 1,000 and 1,200 people.

Donations are still needed, and turkeys are always in high demand.
