A very successful project was held on Saturday at Heavy Duty Specialists where Rotarians packaged 30,000 meals for local families in need. Recipients of the food were: Food Bank, Siena Francis House, Good News Bears, Omaha Street School, and Omaha Home for Boys.   Around 150 volunteers of all ages came and worked packaging macaroni and cheese for these pantries. The project was facilitated by Outreach, an Iowa-based non-profit. Funds were provided by YOU when you gave to the International and local Charitable Foundations.    Funds came back to us from Rotary International in the form of a District Grant which was matched with funds from our club's Foundation, West Rotary, and SW Omaha Rotary.  In addition, the $784 we raised at the Souper Bowl Food  Drive was used to purchase additional ingredients.
A special thank you to Walt Horner for volunteering all of his time and facility and to Nick Jasa (and family) who helped organize and lead!
