3 Area Rotary clubs are combining efforts to host the largest food drive in 2021

When 3 members, of 3 different area Rotary clubs learned that many (almost all) food drive events had been cancelled in 2021, they started to brainstorm ways to help restore Feed My People’s coffers. Over the last several years the Chippewa Valley After Hours Rotary has hosted a variety of food related events in an effort to support their mission, Eradicating Hunger in the Chippewa Valley. Our typical event (pictured) brought together teams of volunteers across the valley to pack nonperishable meals, this event has provided Feed My People with thousands of meals each year.

“Maintaining safety is a major priority for our families and partners”, says Kaylynn Winegar, Charter President of the After Hours Club, “in an effort to support Feed My People in a big way, our partners, Eau Claire Noon and Morning Rotary Clubs are helping to host Rotary Feeds the Valley”. Spanning over a month, Rotary Feeds the Valley gives participates various ways to participate:

1. Become a Host Donation Site: Contact, we will arrange pick up or drop off of a food collection box (pictured below). When your box is full volunteers will come to collect and deliver to Feed My People. They will be weighing donations and collecting monetary support. Our goal is to make a huge impact this year.

2. Financial Support - Donate $1, $5 or more! Can’t donate food but want to help support the cause? Check out our website at to donate.

3. Become a Sponsor - $150 provides 600 meals, $250 provides 1000 meals, $500 provides 2000 meals, $1000 provides 4000 meals! All sponsors will get recognition on our website, social media and press releases with our finally tally’s are in on November 15, 2021.

Join us for the largest nonperishable food drive in 2021! COVID-19 has severely limited donations to Feed My People. Join Rotary as we Feed the Valley by coordinating a massive food drive across our community.
