Full Tummy Project Packing

 
The Athens Rotary Club is pleased to be able to support our local Fully Tummy Project.  The Full Tummy Project identifies students in area schools who are, or may be, at risk of hunger.  The Athens Rotary Club received a grant from Rotary District 6860 to assist the Club’s support of this worthy project.  This year the Athens Rotary Club will be supplying food for between 192-200 students in the Athens City School System during the month of January.  At the Club’s December 11, 2015 meeting all members present assisted in packing 800 bags of food to be distributed by Rotary member to local schools in January.  Rotary members and guests packed approximately 8,800 items in under two hours.  Items included 1,600 cans of microwavable meat and pasta, 1,600 fruit cups, and hundreds of servings of juice, granola bars, and breakfast pastries.  The Club will undertake a similar project in the spring involving County schools.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this project!
