On Saturday, April 1, 2017, the Greece Rotary Club will host a Greece Community meal packing event at the Greece Assembly of God on Long Pond Road. Stop Hunger Now* will deliver the ingredients and supplies and provide on-site guidance. With the help of 300 volunteers from local civic groups, faith congregations, schools, and businesses, 60,000 meals will be packed to feed starving children in developing countries. With the help of sponsors and the community the event needs to raise $18,000 to support the event. The Greece Rotary Club has contributed the first $3,000. To address hunger in the local Greece community, non-perishable food items will be collected during the event and donated to local food cupboards serving struggling families in Greece.
