As the holidays approach, some people don't know how they're going to put food on the table for their family's celebration. That is why local organizations are stepping up to help anyone who asks for aid.

Over at Feeding Chittenden, they have a goal to serve 10,000 meals this holiday season. They expect to help at least 5,000 people for both Thanksgiving and Christmas but it may be more.

"That number comes from the number of households coming in each month," said Anna McMahon, major gifts and communications manager with Feeding Chittenden. "Because of high food prices and turkeys being just under two dollars a pound, we expect the need to be higher."
