Giving hot meals on Christmas

Rochester, N.Y. - It's the season of giving, and volunteers were doing just that St. Peter's Kitchen in Rochester.

They were making sure those who were hungry had a hot meal.

I feel very blessed today to have these people, said Mary Ripley, who was eating Christmas dinner with her family. Being on DSS it's hard to make ends meet and you know food stamps don't go all the way through the month so we have to come to places like this that help out once and awhile.

It takes over a dozen volunteers to make a meal like this happen.

St. Peters Kitchen has a number of dedicated volunteers like Bob and Mary Ann Sailer who have been giving their time on Christmas Day for the last three years.

It's just a good thing to do and in fact we hope someday we'll be able to bring our grandchildren along with us and give them the experience, said Bob Sailer, at Christmas time you can give back that's really what we're trying to do here.

And their giving hasnt gone unnoticed.

Sometimes when it feels like there's no one out there that cares, said Tharin Mabbox, who was eating dinner at the kitchen, this shows us that there are people that care and are willing to come [and] spend a lot of time out of their busy lives just for us.

St. Peters Kitchen served around 100 meals on Christmas Day.
