Christina Sorbello Boilermaker Charity Bib
This will be my 10th Boilermaker and when presented with the opportunity to run on behalf of the Food Bank of Central New York, there wasn’t any reason not to! As someone who has worked with the Food Bank for several years, I know how important their job is and how hard everyone at the Food Bank works to provide healthy nutritious meals to the thousands of people across central New York who have to make decisions everyday about whether or not they or their families will eat. Those of us who are fortunate enough to have an abundance of food and don’t have to wonder where our next meal is coming from or if we will have one, have a responsibility to provide help to those who need it.
I am blessed to be able to run and blessed to do so for the Food Bank of Central New York. Please support me and the Food Bank's mission to eliminate hunger in our communities.
The Food Bank's charity bib team is comprised of five volunteer individuals who have each pledged to raise at least $500 for Food Bank of Central New York in return for a guaranteed spot in the Boilermaker.
Funds raised through charity bibs will support the Food Bank's Diabetes & You program and our Pantry Annex Cold Trailer (PACT) program. Diabetes & You is a collaborative effort aiming to improve the overall knowledge of food pantry guests living with diabetes or pre-diabetes by informing individuals about the disease, how to improve self-management, ways to reduce risk, and what foods encourage a healthy lifestyle. The PACT program, in partnership with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, will simultaneously address hunger and the environmental issue of food waste by increasing storage capacity for perishables at our partner agencies.
