Sutter Health employees donate 3,350 pounds of food to local food banks

JACKSON, CA – Sutter Health employees donated more than 3,350 pounds of non-perishable items to seven food banks as part of the hospital's campaign to help food banks prepare for the busy holiday season.

“The donations from Sutter Health employees aim to help provide local food banks with enough food to meet increased holiday demand and make sure that no table is empty on Thanksgiving and Christmas,” said Angelika Corchado, community benefit associate with Sutter Health. “This is our fifth year supporting food banks in Northern California through our food drive, and each pound of food donated means a holiday meal for those in need.”

Boxes of stuffing, gravy, canned yams, rice, boxed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce and pie filling filled the donation bins at Sutter Amador Hospital.

"I was happy to see an increase in items of nutritional value because we are really trying to diminish hunger and promote the health of our neighbors who need our support," said Lisa Hoover, manager of food and nutrition services at Sutter Amador Hospital. "We can all do our part to help our community share in the joys of holiday meals, now and throughout the year."

With more than 25 donations sites throughout Sutter Health, physicians, volunteers and employees helped supply seven food banks serving Amador, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Solano and Yolo counties.

“The food banks were overcome with emotion by our employees’ generosity,” said Corchado, who helped organize the campaign. “They were very thankful for the food items that will directly help them provide food to families on Thanksgiving.”

Sutter Amador Hospital donated items to the Interfaith Food Bank of Amador County and continues to collect non-perishable items in donation boxes near the hospital’s cafeteria and Outpatient Services.

"By supporting our local food banks, Sutter Health is giving back to our communities as a whole," said Anne Platt, CEO at Sutter Amador Hospital. "Our food drive complements the many other ways that our organization works to enhance the health and well-being of people in the communities we serve."

This year, on Tuesday, November 28, 2107, Operation Care and many other Amador County nonprofit organizations are participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

One of the best ways to get involved is in our own community. 

Amador Community Foundation gives this nationally recognized annual giving campaign a special local twist. By making ONLINE donations at on Tuesday, November 28th between 6am and 8pm Pacific Time, or by check at the Charity Meet & Greet, your dollars go further, thanks to incentives of more than $10,000 from the Helen Fallis Fund and other local donors. 

Last year, Amador's #GivingTuesday raised $95,822 for local charities! Amador Community Foundation matched $13,500 for a total day of giving of $109,322. Operation Care proudly received $1979.58 (see complete list here).
