Rotary Clubs across Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley are initiating their ‘Week of Action’ in support of local food banks and organizations who provide free meals to those in need. All together, the Rotary Clubs from the Ottawa area will be donating $10,000 for various food initiatives.
The ‘Week of Action’ began on May 25, 2022 for the Ottawa-Stittsville Rotary Club with a $1,000.00 donation to the Stittsville Food Bank. This is not the Club’s first donation to support our food bank. They continue to support those who use the food bank as the rapidly rising food costs cause a strain on family budgets.
The Clubs participating in the ‘Week of Action, belong to Rotary’s District 7040. The district extends from Montreal to Kingston and from Northern New York State to the Ottawa Valley and beyond – with one Club hailing from Iqaluit!
The District is providing financial support to help every Club make a donation to a food-related charity or non-profit this week. Rotary Clubs throughout the District are expected to donate well over $60,000 to this worthwhile cause.
