Faith Episcopal Church hosted its annual food drive on Super Bowl Sunday to benefit the Food Bank of El Dorado County.
For many years the Food Bank of El Dorado County and Faith Episcopal Church have had a simple but unique relationship.
Every Super Bowl Sunday, Faith Episcopal Church collects non-perishable food items for the Food Bank. Each year the goal is to collect 2,000 pounds of food and this year the drive brought in an astounding 3,450 pounds of food.
“The generosity and kindness of the congregation is overwhelming. I have personally participated in this drive by driving the food bank truck to the church and returning the collection to the food bank warehouse each year. The food bank is truly grateful for its continued community support from organizations like Faith Episcopal Church,” said Mike Sproull, food bank founder.
“We are honored to be supported by Faith Episcopal Church each and every Super Bowl Sunday. This year the congregation really pulled out all the stops and exceeded all expectations with its drive by collecting 3,450 pounds of food for El Dorado County’s most at-risk population,” said Carey Fong, Food Bank communications and development director.
El Dorado County is a very giving community and we look forward to working with many more organizations throughout the year.
