Imagine entering a room full of bins of apples, pears, corn, carrots, onions, potatoes, or green beans and knowing that in a few hours, you and other Rotarians will have repacked thousands of pounds into cases for delivery to local food banks. What a sense of accomplishment for a Saturday morning!
… you can get directly involved with the fight against hunger …
Every month, hundreds of Rotarians from across District 5030 gather at one of the two Rotary First Harvest (RFH) partner programs’ warehouses to help sort and repack produce that RFH has gathered. RFH work parties are one of our District’s most enduring and enjoyable service activities; and you can get directly involved with the fight against hunger, socialize with Rotarians from other Clubs, have a great time, and get a free doughnut as your reward!
Members, guests, potential members, and family members — everyone is invited to join this work party. It is a terrific activity for kids (4th grade and older), who always seem to outwork every adult in the vicinity. It’s also a great way to show people how Rotary is making our community better.
Bellevue Rotary First Harvest Work Parties are held bi-monthly, on the second Saturday, from 8:30AM to 11:00AM, at the Northwest Harvest Warehouse, 22220 68th Ave S, Kent. Check the BRC calendar for exact dates.
