CAMERON PARK — Faith Episcopal Church is putting a spin — or spiral — on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3.
While many will gather together on game day to consume large amounts of food, Faith Episcopal will attempt to collect large amounts of food for the Food Bank of El Dorado County.
Members of the Faith Church Youth Group are holding a “fill the truck” food drive on Feb. 3 from 7:45 a.m. until noon.
Faith Church members have been collecting food donations on Super Bowl Sunday for more than 10 years. In the past several years, the church members have collected nearly a ton of food (2,000 pounds) for the food bank.
The food bank provides food assistance on a daily basis by partnering with more than 40 local emergency food response agencies including battered women’s shelters, senior centers, food pantries, under privileged youth programs and soup kitchens.
According to the food bank records, in 2009, its volunteers and financial supporters helped to distribute more than $2.5 million of food to the hungry of El Dorado County.
Faith Church encourages members to donate non-perishable food items by the case, but will accept any and all donations of non-perishable items. Youth will be on site in the parking lot to help unload trunks and load food donations directly into the food bank truck.
Faith Episcopal Church is at 2200 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park.
