Holiday Food Box

Our club worked with a local non-profit to provide food and other necessities to needy families.

Detailed description

Our club filled food bags for families in need. We worked with the CAP Agency (the largest social service network in our county) to identify 50 families who would benefit from our food bags. We did this between Thanksgiving and Christmas to fill that gap. We worked with our local grocer to get a discounted price for the items and his staff made sure we had everything we needed. We also chose to make these bags special by including food for multiple meals as well as extra treats. Chicken, lasagna, vegetables, potatoes, fruit, rolls, and other items were packed based on the number of family members. We added toiletries, candy and pencils and activity books for kids. We topped off the bags with a whole pie and a half gallon of ice cream. Other club members delivered the bags to the families. The club spent $2700 to make this project a success.

Community needs, project impact, and sustainability

Community assessment: How the project team learned about the community’s needs

We were not able to do the same service project we did the year before due to the pandemic. Food insecurity is always an issue and even more so during the pandemic. A Rotarian had done a similar project as a member of a different club.

Project impact: How the project will help the community after the project ends

We were able to help 50 of the most neediest families in our county.

Sustainability: How the benefits of the project will continue afterward
