Nassau, Bahamas – The Rotary Club of Old Fort (RCOF) partnered with The Bahamas Feeding Network to prepare, package and distribute over 500 plates of food to persons in need on Sunday, July 31.

“Keeping with our international theme, ‘Rotary Serving Humanity’ our club is pleased to have collaborated with the Bahamas Feeding Network to efficiently deliver meals to hundreds and we implore others to do the same, said president Tameika Watson.

The Rotary Club of Old Fort partnered with the Bahamas Feeding Network to prepare, package and distribute over 500 dinners on Sunday, July 31.

The partnership between the two non-profit organizations mirrors Rotary International’s service partnership with Global Food Banking Network as many worldwide Rotarians believe that food banking and food distribution are proven solutions to two critical global problems: world hunger and food waste.

Rotary Old Fort Community Service Director Deidree Bain said, "The members of RCOF are always excited to give back to our communities in need. We have planned several projects for upcoming year which will embody rotary’s motto ‘Service Above Self’."

RCOF meets at The Clubhouse at Old Fort Bay every Wednesday at 6.30pm.
