BENEFITING: ROTARY FIRST HARVEST

THE STORY:

Benjamin Rasmus, RFH program director, and Heather Hoffman, community activist, will pedal 3,500+ miles from Washington State to Washington DC calling attention to hunger, food waste and gleaning in America. The bike ride will last about ten weeks from mid-June to late-August 2014. Along the route they will stop at farms, food banks, nonprofits and service clubs to talk and learn about the paradox of food waste and hunger. Major stops along the ride include Portland, Boise, Denver, Omaha, Iowa City, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Washington DC.

Our cause is to spotlight volunteerism as one solution to the issues of hunger and food waste.

Hunger is a problem – Nearly 48 million people in the United States face hunger.

Food waste is a problem – 40 percent of all food grown in the United States is uneaten.

Gleaning can alleviate both problems. Collecting unharvested or unused fruits and vegetables and distributing them to food insecure populations is one avenue to attack hunger and reduce food waste. RFH is leading the charge to start gleaning projects and share best practices across the country. Billions of pounds of food that are wasted could feed millions of hungry Americans.

Service Above Self is a key part of the solution.  RFH is working closely with Rotary International to engage Rotarians in key cities like Denver and Washington DC, as well as events at Rotary International headquarters in Chicago.
