As you may know, our Club played a key role in the formation of the Food Rescue Program that launched this past Thursday in Esquimalt. It was a very special day for Rotary, The Mustard Seed Street Church, The Victoria Foundation and Thrifty Food’s with the official opening of the Food Distribution Centre. Our hard work in fund-raising has manifested itself in this wonderful program from which thousands of needy Victorians will benefit.

 

The car raffle that has been a part of our Club for many years concluded its legacy of hard work and dedication by many Rotarians and friends of Rotary in 2015. That year, our Club teamed up with other Rotary Clubs to raise 100,000 which was matched Victoria Foundation. The total of $200,000 was donated to the startup of the Food Rescue Program. We should all be proud to be part of such an amazing community venture. One that we hope will be around for many years to come.
