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’."
