Jindals donate nearly 300 pounds of food to local food bank
BATON ROUGE- Gov. Bobby Jindal and his wife have donated nearly 300 pounds of food to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank for the holidays.
The food was collected from guests who were asked to bring non-perishable goods when they visited the governor's mansion.
In a statement Tuesday, first lady Supriya Jindal thanked those who donated and encouraged others to give food, money or time to their local food banks during the holiday season.
Jindal, who is term-limited, leaves office Jan. 11, though his family will move out of the governor's mansion a bit earlier than his last day in office.
