Rotary club to host meal packaging event March 22

Press Release

Rotary Club of Asheville

Join in the fight against hunger in Western North Carolina and participate in the fifth Annual Rotarians Against Hunger (RAH) meal packaging event on March 22, 2014 at the Reuter Family Branch of the YMCA in Biltmore Park. The goal is to package 200,000 + meals of fortified macaroni and cheese dinners that will be distributed throughout Western North Carolina to families in need.

A meal packaging event is a fun, family friendly and immensely rewarding experience where people – individuals, families, church groups, civic organizations and businesses – come together and package nutritious meals to help feed our neighbors.

With the assistance of community partners Mission Healthcare Foundation, MANNA FoodBank, Reuter YMCA and Seed Programs International, Rotary seeks to address the increasingly critical need for food among people in WNC and overseas. The meal packaging event is an effort to help locally and RAH is raising $50,000 to make it happen. Sponsors of the event are Signarama and Thermo Fisher Scientific.
