Tampa, Florida -- Thousands of people living on the streets this Christmas are wondering where they are going to sleep and eat? But thanks to Metopolitan Ministries in Tampa, some of them were able to put a warm meal in their stomachs.

"How many trays we have?" said Dave Henn, a volunteer.

Henn is spending this Christmas with his family, but they're not at home.

"There may had been some grumbles," says Henn.

The Henn family is serving up meals for homeless in the Tampa Bay.

This is the 2nd time David has pulled his son Erik from his presents under the tree.

"Before we came, it didn't seem like the best thing to do," says Erik Henn, a volunteer.

But after an hour of feeding those who may have not eaten otherwise, 11-year-old Erik says the presents can wait.

"It's just the feeling you get handing out to others," says Henn.

These meals may be wrapped up for the day, but that doesn't mean Metro quits serving. They serve 2,300 meals daily and say it's critical that donations come in once the holidays are over.
