Food Drive


Press Release

The Hackensack Rotary Club in partership with District 7490's R.Y.L.A group (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) coordinated a holiday food drive.  Non-perishable food items were collected and distributed to the Center for Food Action.  This highly successful campaign yielded several truck-loads of food to help those in need. 

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.


There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.
