NEW: Foundation & Food Bank Partnership:

The Lafayette Rotary Foundation is partnering with the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano to feed families in our area, and will match donations from Rotarians, friends and family of Rotarians on a dollar for dollar basis, up to $15,000!

The COVID 19 Pandemic’s economic impact has in many cases hit hardest on members of our community who can least afford it.

The local Food Bank supports 65 partner agencies to supply food and meals to seniors, children, students and families in need. Last year they helped serve meals to 1 in 8 people in Contra Costa and Solano County. There are several ways you can contribute to this campaign:

You can click on http://e.givesmart.com/events/hc2 and use your credit card to make a donation.

You can also mail a check to Lafayette Rotary Foundation PO Box 943 Lafayette, CA. 94549. Please make sure your check is made out to the Lafayette Rotary Foundation.

Finally, you can donate your time to the Food Bank by visiting https://volunteer.foodbankccs.org/.
