Last night (September 18th) members from our club, along with family and friends, participated in the Rotary Community Food Drive. We had lots of fun and the community was very generous. Thank you to everyone that participated, donated and volunteered their time. We are blessed to live in such a caring and giving community.

Why is the Rotary Community Food Drive important?
*1 in 3 single parent families in our city live below the poverty line and deal with food insecurity.
*1 in 10 Alberta households experience food insecurity.
*Nearly 1 in 5 Canadian children live in poverty.
