The Food Bank of El Dorado County’s warehouse was filled with activity last Wednesday afternoon as members of the Placerville Kiwanis gathered to provide holiday food baskets to local families. This event is an annual project organized by the local service club in collaboration with the Food Bank.

The Kiwanis Holiday Basket program started several years ago as an effort by club members to help the families with children struggling during the holidays, Kiwanis Club members and local community participants individually sponsor the cost of each of the 55 baskets which are built in collaboration with the Food Bank, which provides the food for the project. The recipients for the Kiwanis holiday baskets are named by various non-profit agencies, including New Morning, the Center for Violence Free Relationships and Family Connections.

“The partnership between Kiwanis and the Food Bank creates this very successful way for Kiwanis to support our community,” said Kiwanis Project Chairman Karl Weiland.“Working with the Food Bank is way to really leverage our dollars.”

The Placerville Kiwanis Club is an active part of life in El Dorado County whose members support and participate in a wide variety of activities serving the children and the community. The meets for lunch every Wednesday at Cold Springs Country Club. For more information on the Placerville Kiwanis, visit their website at placervillekiwanis.org or by calling President Lori Warden at 530-722-7897.

“The Kiwanis event at the Food Bank was so fast paced and efficient that at the end of the day our warehouse worker jokingly asked who was going to stick around and help clean up,” said Bill Sullivan of the Food Bank of El Dorado County. “Supervisor-elect Brian Veerkamp and County Assessor Karl Weiland then stuck around and accepted the duties. Now that there is a true partnership.”

The Food Bank was founded in 2000 and is the largest collaborative charity in El Dorado County. The Food Bank is in partnership with over 30 local emergency food response sites provides assistance on a daily basis from distribution centers that are strategically placed throughout El Dorado County.
