Albany- An Albany church opened its doors for the eighth annual Father's Kitchen Christmas dinner. Ham, stuffing, and all the trimmings were served to nearly 300.

Father's Kitchen took 368 reservations for Saturday's meal, offered to those in need. Organizers say, demand has grown because of the job situation in Albany.

"The situation in Albany is such now, with the job situation and we have a lot of homeless and so our homeless have increased, but we've opened it up to anybody who needs a good meal, we serve full meals," said Toni Grebel, Father's Kitchen Organizer.

Those meals are served on the first and third Saturday of every month, starting at 10:45 a.m. with a message. The group also collected donations and purchased gifts for children of all ages.
