Rotarians Against Hunger at the Reuter Family YMCA

20 Apr 2013

The 2013 Rotarians Against Hunger project is the 4th annual WNC community effort to help our neighbors, both nearby and across continents, who don’t have enough food to eat. Since 2010, Rotarians Against Hunger projects, involving hundreds of donors and volunteers, have raised over $100,000 in donations and packaged over 700,000 meals.

70% of the food has been distributed through MANNA FoodBank to our neighbors in need across Western North Carolina. 30% has gone to help with food shortages abroad.

Once again, Rotary Clubs across Western North Carolina in conjunction with Kids Against Hunger, Mission Healthcare Foundation, and MANNA FoodBank have joined together and set lofty and important goals:
1) Raise at least $50,000 from corporations, civic organizations, non-profits and individuals
2)Purchase ingredients and package those food supplies into at least 300,000 meals
3)Educate our communities about the food insecurity challenge our neighbors face

Meals will be packaged on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at the Reuter Family YMCA with the help of YOU and hundreds of volunteers. Please get more information, sign up to volunteer and/or donate at
