Welcome to the Rotary Food Project

The Rotary Food Project is a revolutionary way to collect food for those in need on a year round basis. Neighborhood Coordinators (NC) enlist their neighbors to become Donors to the Rotary Food Pantry.

What is it?

Neighbors donate a bag of food every two months. We supply the bag and pick up the food. This provides the Rotary Food Pantry with a steady supply of food and gives the Donors the satisfaction of making a real difference in the local community.

How the project works

It's a simple solution: Neighborhood Coordinators (NC) agree to organize a small group of their friends and neighbors to become donors. This can be any group that they choose to coordinate. Food Donors are neighbors who agree to give food every two months.

When a neighbor joins

The NCgives a reusable bag to them and suggests that they buy one extra item from the list each time they go to the store. Then every two months, NC picks up the bag of food, leave an empty bag and bring the food to the Food Pantry.

When is pickup Day?

Pickup day is the second Saturday of each even month (February, April, June, August, October, and December).
