The Fairfield-Suisun and Solano Sunset Rotary Clubs propose to implement a project which provides local economically disadvantaged persons with food, while in turn supporting local restaurants, grocery stores and farmers. The Fairfield-Suisun (F-S) Rotary Club will directly purchase local produce and other food items and supply them to local food delivery non-profits such as Meals on Wheels, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, and the Salvation Army. In addition, the F-S Club proposes to provide food vouchers for teenagers at the Fairfield Police Activity League Center as well as assist them to stock their Food Pantry for their clients. The F-S Club will also purchase lunches and deliver them to essential workers (police, fire, ambulance, and hospital workers) in the County. F-S Rotarians will also help residents harvest their privately owned fruit trees in support of our county’s food distribution centers. Finally, the Solano Sunset Club Rotarians will provide groceries and direct delivery to seniors and other individuals identified by local non-profits as being in need of assistance.
