(WJLA) - Hundreds of volunteers are helping to pack and distribute food to thousands of families in need this holiday season.

Through Project GiveBack's annual Thanksgiving food distribution, 1,500 families in the Washington area will receive Thanksgiving meals with all the trimmings, including food to last up to 10 days for a family of four.

Saturday's volunteers include D.C. Councilman Tommy Wells and Project GiveBack founder Ransom Miller III.

Last year, volunteers delivered boxes of food to over 1,000 local families.
