ROTARY DISTRICT 5340 has been CHALLENGED by the LIONS CLUBS OF SAN DIEGO AND IMPERIAL to collect food items for local food banks in San Diego and Imperial Counties. The Challenge between our two Districts will continue through November. DG Chuck Pretto would like clubs to gather donated food item, weigh it and let the District know the total weight amount and then proceed to drop it off at either the San Diego, North County or Imperial Food Banks. At the end of the month, we will compare the amount of food we donate versus what the Lion's come up with for a friendly competition. We have twice as many Rotarians in San Diego as do the Lions, but we know they are motivated to beat us, Let's come together and donate food to one of these local food banks.
