Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams’ bet that the Denver Broncos will beat the Carolina Panthers in Sunday’s Super Bowl netted in 674 pounds of groceries being dropped off this morning at Food Bank of the Rockies.
And more food is coming.
Today’s food was donated by by Enstrom Candies, who got in on the secretary’s bet. In addition to tuna, peanut butter and cans of sweet corn, the company contributed some of its famous toffee — 2,000 individual candy bars to be exact.
“Take that, Carolina Panthers!” Rick Enstrom said, as he and Williams helped unload food from the back of his truck.
Williams and North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall are helping out the hungry with their Super Bowl bet. Each office will collect food to be donated to their respective food banks, Food Bank of the Rockies and Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. The donations will be made in the name of the winning team, which Williams predicts will be the Denver Broncos.
In addition to the secretary of state’s office, Denver Clerk Debra Johnson and Arapahoe Clerk Matt Crane and their staffs also are collecting food items and will add them to the Colorado Secretary of State’s haul. The donations will be delivered to Food Bank of the Rockies next week.
