MLK Day of Service Meal Packing Event

Hello, fellow Rotarians:

Last week you received an email regarding our upcoming annual day of service when we will package 100,000 meals on the MLK Day Holiday – this year it falls on Monday, January 21, 2019.  Here is the link to sign up:

We are also conducting a food drive, beginning immediately: In addition to packing meals, we will be collecting non-perishable food items to re-stock the food pantries at Durham Tech and North Carolina Central University after the holidays.  We are asking our local Rotary clubs to consider collecting non-perishables at each club meeting for the next 6 weeks leading up to the event.  Please ask members to bring donations to your club meeting; or, if they are volunteering on January 21, bring donations to the event.

The most-needed items are as follows:

Protein: cans or pouches of tuna, salmon, or chicken; peanut butter (jelly or jam too!
Shelf-stable microwaveable or canned meals such as chili, beef stew, ravioli, etc.
Rice (boxes or microwaveable pouches)
Pasta, noodles, and jarred or canned pasta sauces; boxed macaroni and cheese mixes; ramen noodles
Dried or canned beans
Canned vegetables
Canned or dried fruit
Cereal, granola bars

Thanks as always for your generosity and support!
