Anacortes Lutheran Church is hosting its annual Christmas dinner this year, with a twist.
The dinner is pandemic-style, so volunteers will run out hot dinners to people waiting in their cars in a to-go format, instead of serving everyone inside.
The dinner, made up of turkey, dressing, gravy, beans, corn, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls and pumpkin pie, is available from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Christmas day. Food will be in reheatable containers.
Anyone who wants dinner should visit the parking lot behind the church, 2100 O Avenue, and request what meals they need.
Last year, the church handed out almost 400 meals in a similar format, organizer Anne Barry said.
This year, they plan to give a meal to anyone who wants or needs one, she said.
Volunteers are still needed. People can sign up to help by calling the church office at 360-293-9586.
Anyone who does not have a car can walk through the line. If people are homebound, they can call the church office no later than noon Thursday to schedule home delivery.
