BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Law enforcement was working a special beat Wednesday night, preparing to deliver Christmas cheer, along with baskets of food to make sure no one goes hungry over the holidays.

It was the 29th annual Family to Family Christmas Food Basket Giveaway. Sheriff's deputies, Bakersfield police officers, W.A. Distributing and other volunteers packed nearly 400 food baskets.

Each basket was filled with a turkey, potatoes, stuffing, tortillas, oranges, candy canes and canned goods.

The giveaway was made possible with donations.

Families who receive the baskets were chosen from referrals made by deputies and officers from both KCSO and BPD.
