The Jindals typically ask guests to the Governor’s Mansion to bring non-perishable items to donate at Christmas-time.

“Our food banks generously serve our communities in many different ways not only during a response to natural disaster, like hurricanes, but also year round,” Supriya Jindal said in a statement. “Bobby and I continue to encourage anyone who can to donate time, funding or non-perishable goods to our food banks during this holiday season.”
