The Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise is a proud supporter of the Starfish Program.  This program provides much needed food on the weekends. Each Friday at school these kids are given a backpack full of staples to ensure they are ready and nourished to learn on Monday. It is providing food security to the most vulnerable in our community.  Our Club has been integral in fundraising and coordinating donations for this program in North Langley. It is facilitated and supported by the Langley School District Foundation. One of our Club’s signature events - Taste of Fort Langley -  dedicates all the proceeds to this program. 
 
We are pleased to continue supporting the North Langley Starfish program during the COVID-19 pandemic with a matching grant from the Rotary District 5050 of $1700.00.  We have sent a cheque for a total of  $3,400.00 to the  Langley School District Foundation who, in turn will use these funds to provide weekly grocery credit to these same families until the schools have returned to being fully operational. To encourage contactless interactions these families are asked to provide identification and a letter from the School District at participating grocers. This will ensure that there is no interruption in support for nourishing food during this time of isolation while at the same time reducing the chance of further spread of this virus.
