(HANNIBAL)—LuLaBelle’s restaurant with the help of a lot of volunteers prepared Christmas dinner for around 700 people. Owners Mike and Pam Ginsberg have been serving the free Christmas dinner at the restaurant since 1991. A large group of volunteers also delivered dinners to people regularly served by Hannibal Nutrition Center’s home delivered meals.

In Quincy, around 500 people gathered for the annual Salvation Army Christmas dinner. 150 volunteers spent part of their Christmas serving the meal.
