Rotary Food Fight
This new fundraising venture will occur June 27 through July 31. It is established as a friendly competition between clubs in District 6080. The district has been divided into two regions, north and south (see below). The goal is for each region to accumulate as many points as possible by doing volunteer work or donating money or food to regional food banks and pantries or other charitable organizations which provide food for the needy and hungry.
Points are allocated to clubs through Rotarians, Rotaracters, Interacters, their families and friends as follows:
- 100 points = one hour volunteer time
- 100 Points = $50.00 Donation
- 100 Points = 100 Pounds of food donated (bulk institutional donations will not be included)
Club president-elects will be responsible for collecting their club’s total points and, of course, will follow the Four Way Test in their reporting. Totals must be submitted to the District Community Service Chair by August 10. The winner will be announced as soon as possible after that. Clubs with the highest per capita points and individuals with the highest point totals in each region will be awarded beautiful certificates for First, Second and Third Places and be recognized at the District Conference on October 24.
Donations of time, money or food must be made to legitimate charitable organizations and activities, preferably, but not necessarily, those involved with Feeding Missouri (www.feedingmissouri.org), which is a coalition of the six Missouri Food Banks.
