How can I rewrite this query in Linq to get rid of the foreach loops:

IList<Charge> expenseItems = new List<Charge>();
foreach (ExpenseBatch batch in Query<ExpenseBatch>())
            {
                var batchItems = Query<ExpenseBatchItem>()
                                                  .Where(x => x.BatchId == batch.Id).ToList();
                                                                       
                foreach (var batchItem in batchItems)
                {
                    expenseItems.Add(
                        new Charge
                            {
                                Amount = batchItem.Amount,
                                Approved = batch.Approved,
                                Description = batchItem.Description,
                                BatchDate = batch.BatchDate,
                                BatchDescription = batch.BatchDescription,
                                Employee = batchItem.Employee,
                                ProjectCode = batch.ProjectCode
                            }
                        );
                }
            }
            return expenseItems .OrderBy(x => x.BatchDate).ToList();

var expenseItems =
   (from batch in Query<ExpenseBatch>()
   join batchItem in Query<ExpenseBatchItem>() on batch.Id equals batchItem.BatchId
   select new Charge{ Amount = batchItem.Amount,
					Approved = batch.Approved,
					Description = batchItem.Description,
					BatchDate = batch.BatchDate,
					BatchDescription = batch.BatchDescription,
					Employee = batchItem.Employee,
					ProjectCode = batch.ProjectCode }).OrderBy(b=>b.BatchDate);
