Food Bank of El Dorado County Annual Holiday Outreach 2015

Dec 02, 2015 05:28PM, Published by David Norby, Categories: Community




Friday & Saturday, December 18th – 19th, 2015 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Food Bank of El Dorado County located at 4550 Business Drive in Cameron Park.

Thanksgiving 2015 is in the record books and it’s time for Christmas. 

The holiday season is here! A Joyous time of the year that most people look forward to but it can be a time of sadness and depression for some of our neighbors who struggle to make ends meet.

Many local residents are asking themselves right now, “How am I going to provide a holiday meal, gifts for my children and still pay the rent and bills at the end of the month?”  

This year, your local Food Bank is busy planning and working with the community to reach out to this struggling population.

For as long as I can remember every Xmas season in El Dorado County something special happens. Individuals, families, church groups, service clubs, local businesses, scouts and many more all come together in one common cause, to ease the burden on our local neighbors that struggle to make ends meet, by providing all the fixings for a good Christmas dinner to over  1,000 local at risk families.  

The Food Bank of El Dorado County host The Annual Holiday Outreach. The El Dorado Sherriff’s Dept. Star volunteers will deliver food baskets to local homebound residents, and local Veterans Organizations will make sure all Vets in El Dorado County have a good holiday meal for them and their family.

The outreach itself will take place on Dec 18th- 19th at The Food Bank of El Dorado County’s new distribution warehouse in Cameron Park.

 Mike Sproull Food Bank Founder understands how everyone has had to cut back due to the economy and individuals, and local businesses are not in the position to make large contribution at this time. Mr. Sproull asks that everyone consider making a contribution towards the program that they can afford. El Dorado County as a team can and will ease the burden of our neighbors, that struggle to make end s meet. Local children have more to worry about during the holidays. 

To receive holiday assistance all recipients must be from low income households who are struggling to make ends meet and would otherwise go without a holiday meal for their family.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department Star program will be partnering with the Food Bank of El Dorado County to deliver to homebound residents.  If you are homebound please call (530) 621-9950 to arrange a delivery.

Rest assured we WILL NOT run out of food so please come at your assigned time.

NO pre-registration is required.  Eligible individuals simply need to arrive at the Food Bank on December 18th or 19th at their scheduled time.  Please bring valid photo ID reflecting residence in El Dorado County.
