Delmarva rotary clubs gather to combat hunger

SALISBURY, Md. – Rotary clubs across Delmarva, helped prepare 300,000 meals for those less fortunate.

We’re told rotary clubs raised money to fund the meals, which they began packing up on Saturday. The meals will be sent to the Maryland Food Bank, and then distributed to those families in need.

President of the Salisbury Rotary Club, Bill Satterfield, tells 47 ABC they had over 100 volunteers help prepare their goal amount of 60,000 meals. They packed up bags of ingredients that had about eight meals per bag.

Satterfield says, this project just emphasizes how dedicated they are to helping everyone in the community. “We have a huge number of people among the hundreds who are not in rotary, they just want to help and we’re real happy to have them with us,” says Satterfield. He adds, “We’re just happy to serve the community and help make it a better place to live and to help our friends and neighbors.”

We’re also told Choptank Electric Trust, Community Foundation of Eastern Shore, American Legion Post #166, Elks Lodge #817, and M&T Charitable Trust helped with raising funds for the meals.
