Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Some needy senior citizens got a helping hand today in Baton Rouge.
The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank helped to pass out food and clothing to more than 100 seniors.
The food was paid for with donations from citizens across the Greater Baton Rouge area. Those who were helped feel now it's their chance to give back.
"I really appreciate it, and I think that the only way that I can appreciate it is giving back,” said Joe Wilson Jr.
The Baton Rouge Food Bank says that it only takes $100 to feed a senior citizen for one year.
