Volunteers with The Mission at Kern County are preparing food this morning, getting ready to serve more than 500 free meals to homeless guests as well as community families.
"Everyone should enjoy an Easter meal, even if you don't have a place to call home," said Carlos Baldovinos Executive Director of the Mission at Kern County.
They will be serving golden baked hams, scalloped potatoes, green beans and cookies.
The early Easter celebration will take place at the Christian Education Chapel, which is located inside the Mission Gates at 821 E. 21st Street. Meals will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
