Scare Away Hunger Oct. 27-28 to benefit Food Bank

CAMERON PARK – For many years a group of philanthropic teenagers have worked hard every October on a haunted house that raises awareness and donations for the Food Bank of El Dorado County. In 2012, the Scare Away Hunger crew is back bigger than ever with the “Scare Away Hunger Hunger Carnival and Haunted House ” to benefit El Dorado County’s most at risk children, seniors and families with emergency food assistance.

This dedicated group of teens will be adding all of the chills and thrills to their spectacular haunted house. Last year this group raised over $3,500 in monetary donations and over 3,000 pounds of non perishable foods for the Food Bank. This year, they are looking to make it even more successful with an early start on their efforts.

“The reason Scare Away Hunger chooses to donate to the Food Bank of El Dorado County is because the number of people using food banks and food closest has increased tremendously in this recession,” said Kelly Meinz, who founded Scare Away Hunger with his brother Kevin. “We, the teenagers of Scare Away Hunger are thankful to our parents for being well taken care of, but we cannot ignore the fact that that are those that need our help and we want to pay this service forward to those who need the help.”

The 2012 Scare Away Hunger event will take place on Oct. 27 and 28 at 1855 Delphina Court in Cameron Park. At this time the crew is gathering the donations of building materials and supplies from various community businesses to begin the construction of the haunted house that is expected to attract more than 1,000 people this year. As in years past, entry to the haunted house will be free but a monetary or food donation to benefit the Food Bank of El Dorado County is suggested.

“The Scare Away Hunger Crew has proven their dedication to El Dorado County’s at risk population. For years they have put together this community event and the proceeds have gone to the Food Bank of El Dorado County,” said Mike Sproull, Founder of the Food Bank. “The Food Bank is proud to partner with youth who truly care about their community. We all look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s haunted house and carnival. Together we can make a difference in the lives of many in communities throughout El Dorado County.”

Mark your calendar  and be sure to stop by the Scare Away Hunger Haunted House and Carnival. Those wishing to donate construction materials for Scare Away Hungercan contact Bill Sullivan at the Food Bank at 530-621-9950 or bills@foodbankedc.org.
