Food Bank to Hold Hunger Response Network Meeting in South Lake Tahoe on Wednesday
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CA – The Food Bank of El Dorado County will be in the community of South Lake Tahoe to host a Hunger Response Network Meeting on Wednesday, April 23rd
Hall located at 2748 Lake Tahoe Blvd to collaborate with local organizations to conduct a South Lake Tahoe focused Hunger Study to truly understand the community’s needs and the best ways to allocate the Food Bank’s resources in Tahoe based on these results.
Hunger response agencies, organizations and individuals in South Lake Tahoe who would like to attend this meeting are asked to contact the Food Bank’s Communications & Development Director Carey Fong at (530) 621-9950 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance.
The Food Bank is seeking assistance from the South Lake Tahoe community to conduct this Hunger Study to be able to truly understand the area’s needs and how the Food Bank can better serve the Tahoe community. The Food Bank of El Dorado County along with a collaboration of other hunger response agencies, El Dorado County Health & Human Services Agency, and other community partners will conduct this Hunger Study.
Based on the results of this Hunger Study, the Food Bank will determine the best way to mobilize its resources which include partnerships with California Emergency Food Assistance Program, FoodLink, Feeding America, California Association of Food Banks, USDA, local grocers and others to increase food distributions to its partner agencies throughout South Lake Tahoe.
The Food Bank of El Dorado County and its partner agencies have served the community of South Lake Tahoe for more than 10 years. During this time, the Food Bank has distributed emergency supplemental groceries each month to its partner agencies, held free Farmer’s Markets during the summer months, and distributed groceries from its mobile food pantry. South Lake Tahoe is part of El Dorado County yet it is oftentimes forgotten about; therefore, the Food Bank would like to hear from the community on how South Lake Tahoe can be better served by the Food Bank as an integral organization that wants to “Prevent Hunger – Provide Hope” in communities throughout El Dorado County.
If your organization or business is interested in sponsoring the Food Bank please contact Carey Fong.
Contributions can be mailed to the Food Bank of El Dorado County at 4550 Business Drive, Cameron Park, CA 95682 or online at www.foodbankedc.org or by calling Carey Fong at (530) 621-9950. Together we can reach out to our neighbors who struggle to make ends meet.
