Local Rotary Club donates towards End Hunger’s New Warehouse in Huntingtown
This Spring, Rotary Club of Prince Frederick donated $4,000 to End Hunger In Calvert County in support of The New warehouse, which will be built in Huntingtown in May 2020.
Rotary Club Vice President Bonnie Barrett shared, “The mission of Rotary is to improve the world on a global and local level. Rotary Club Prince Frederick believes that the outreach of End Hunger is amazing and lines up perfectly with Rotary’s mission. End Hunger has done so much for our local community and this new warehouse will expand their outreach. It just makes sense for Rotary to support it.”
The new End Hunger Warehouse will contain a 15,000 square foot food distribution center, a 6,000 square foot culinary training kitchen, as well as a large collaborative space for area non-profits addressing poverty issues. End Hunger feeds more than 15,000 people and distributes more than 1.5 million pounds of food every year.
