BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A canned food drive by Gov. Bobby Jindal and his wife, Supriya, has yielded more than 1,000 pounds of food that will be donated to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
The drive occurred during the governor's inauguration and over the Christmas holiday season.
The state's first lady on Thursday thanked everyone who participated and encouraged those who didn't to consider doing so on their own. She notes that Louisiana's food banks not only respond during emergencies but also serve communities year round.
