Our speaker this week was Lisa Hoffmaster of Food Finders.
We also had a surprise guest from Nigeria. 

 

This week we had two visitors, Dahood and Wayne who
just moved here from Nigeria.  Dahood is already a Rotary
Member in Nigeria so he will be joining our club.

Jean had the Wheel of Misfortune spinning to the tune of 
$317.00.  Dave Davis, Jim Murin, Ken Hall, Joe Vasquez,
and Jean Seruntine got birthday fines while Bill Zastrow and
Dave Romberg got hit with Anniversary and failure to show
fines respectively.

Lisa Hossmaster of Food Finders spoke to us about the
mission and mechanics of the program.  She related to us
about an organization that joins forces with food donors to
help feed the food insecure among us.  One in four kids in
LA County Schools face Food Insecurity.  In California
that is 
16%, of which 32% are children, and 14% are seniors.
2 Billion people could be fed for a year with the food the U.S.
throws away each year.
So Food Finders gets food that is good fresh over produced or
overstocked food to be thrown out and with it's 125 Volunteers, 
delivers it to 210 Rescue Centers that are distributing it to 
people with there backs against the wall or bridge as the case
may be.

I hope to see you all out for our next meeting on January 9th.
