High Voltage Power Supply Manufacturer Holds Annual Food Drive to Fight Local Hunger
Date:1/7/2013

Sutter Creek, California (PRWEB) January 05, 2013

The 45-day food drive held annually by EMCO High Voltage Corporation has added 316 pounds of food and a five-hundred dollar check to the Interfaith Food Bank of Amador County.

“Millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. Male, female, adult, or child — hunger has no boundaries. As a member of the community, we have a responsibility to help as much as we can,” said Kim Bailey, Sales and Marketing Director at EMCO.

EMCO team member Matt LaFrance agrees, "I live in Calaveras County and volunteer at the food bank there. I see the need firsthand and know how important it is to so many people all year."

The USDA reports that nearly 49 million people are living in food insecure households. In Amador County alone, approximately 16,800 families a year seek help from Interfaith Food Bank.

Many people struggle to feed their families due to illness, injury, loss of work, death in the family, or other unexpected, life-changing events. With an average of 1,400 Amador County families a month seeking help, the demand placed on Interfaith Food Bank can seem overwhelming.

"The Interfaith Food Bank is blessed to have the support of our great community. We are averaging 70 families a day and the need continues to grow. Unfortunately, hunger doesn't end with the holidays," said Tom Thompson, managing director at Interfaith Food Bank of Amador County. "Thank you, EMCO, for your continued support!"

Founded in 1998 by a group of local churches and social service organizations, the Interfaith Food Bank is a public, non-profit organization primarily funded by community donations, planned giving, and online contributions.
