BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Hope Ministries helping to spread a little holiday cheer Tuesday morning in the form of some much-needed meal donations.

The organization partnered with others in the community including Exxonmobil to gather ingredients for traditional Christmas meals. They passed the food out to families that frequent the food pantry.

"Every year we generally distribute to a lot of single moms and a lot of grandmothers who are raising their grandkids and otherwise they wouldn't be able to provide for their families,” said Janet Simmons, president and CEO of Hope Ministries.

The donations will help about 100 families.
