The 15th annual Placerville Curves Food Drive was a big success.

During the month of March, the Placerville Curves members donated non-perishable food and cash to benefit the Food Bank of El Dorado County.

Curves members far surpassed their efforts of last year with donations of 1,267 pounds of food.

“Our goal was to top the 1,100 pounds in donations that we collected last year,” said Ky Bessom, manager of Placerville Curves. “We are proud of our members coming together for the good of our community as it truly demonstrates that we are stronger together. Everything that our members donated at our club will benefit local families.”

Over the last 14 years Curves clubs have donated more than 75 million pounds of food in the United States and Canada.

“The past few years have been difficult for many families,” said Placerville Curves owner Belen Brake. “Our Curves annual food drive is one way that we can make a real difference. We encourage everyone, not just our members, to make a donation to the Food Bank of El Dorado County.”

Curves is the largest fitness franchise in the world, helping women in more than 90 countries lead healthier lives.

The Food Bank of El Dorado County is a collaborative network of local charities. Donations to the food bank help non-profit establishments throughout El Dorado County.
