Rotarians Against Hunger needs over 700 volunteers (businesses, families, schools, churches, civic organizations and individuals) to pack food at the annual meal packaging event on April 6, 2019.
Partners include MANNA Foodbank who will distribute the food packages in WNC, the Reuter Family YMCA , who provides space for the RAH food packing event, and Seed Programs International, who will send vegetable seed packets oversees to help address global hunger, and The Rotary Club of Asheville South Foundation which is a 501c3 organization that helps manage all donations.
Rotary Clubs across WNC have been working together to fighting hunger through RAH since 2010. The Rotary Club of Asheville, the Asheville Breakfast Rotary Club, and The Rotary Club of Asheville South provide major coordination and significant financial support for the food packaging event. Rotary Clubs across the region (Sylva, Biltmore, Hendersonville, Black Mountain, Hendersonville Four Seasons, and Madison County) make significant contributions of cash and volunteers. The food insecurity problem is widespread and getting worse in our area. RAH has distributed over 2.4 million meals in WNC and overseas since RAH began in 2010.
