Mission at Kern hosts annual Christmas meal
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
The Mission at Kern County hosted its annual Christmas meal Saturday morning.
The group served men, women and children a traditional Christmas meal and also handed out gifts to those who attended.
The meal is normally held on Christmas Eve, however because Christmas Eve is on a Sunday they decided to hold the meal on Saturday instead.
The meals are made possible by monetary donations and community food drives.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy was among some of the dignitaries on hand for the event.
The Mission at Kern County will serve nearly 15,000 meals during the month of December.
