Laguna Sunrise Rotary Club Helps Elk Grove Food Bank

Saturday members of the Laguna Sunrise Rotary club, and their families, helped sort food at the Elk Grove Food Bank Services. As donations arrived, some LSRC members sorted canned goods onto their appropriate shelves. Others checked expiration dates, filled and loaded boxes for future pickups.

The Rotary idea of friendship, fellowship, and service to others has spread to six continents. The name "Rotary" was chosen because the Club met in rotation at each member's place of business.

The Elk Grove Food Bank Services (EGFBS) provides meals to over 4500 clients per month. Over the past 40 years, EGFBS has distributed an estimated 4,543,000 meals. Their Emergency Food Distribution program provides a three-day food supply to families and individuals.  They are always looking for assistance:  Time, Money or Food. Ask how YOU can help.
