WACO (January 4, 2013)--A reception will be held Sunday at the Salvation Army Community Center to honor the winners of the 2012 Food For Families “Chairman’s Cup.”

Categories include: adult civic, business, financial, college, healthcare, industrial/manufacturing, insurance, legal, religious, and schools.

The largest contributor(s) in each category will be recognized.

The winner of the Chairman’s Cup goes to American Income Life Insurance who raised 38,205.98 pounds of food.

Food For Families is a coalition of food pantries across Central Texas who have banded together to collect non-perishable food in a one-day coordinated drive on the Friday before Thanksgiving.

All food donated stays in the county in which it was collected to serve the people in need in that county.

In November, the 2012 Food For Families food drive set an all time record collecting 1,453,065 pounds of food.

It was the 23rd year for the event.

The reception will begin at 3 p.m. at 1225 S. IH 35.
