CG Rotary Feeds 4800 Meals during COVID -19

The CG Rotary club in partnership with APS, Walmart, Fitzgibbon's Law Offices, Western State Bank, District 5500 Foundation Grandts and various club members provided meals for 800 families since June 13, 2020. Each family received a box of prepared food including enchiladas, rice, beans, salsa, and chips for a family of 6 people. The food was prepared by Fernando Cornejo and his staff at Eva's Fine Mexican Restaurant. The preparation is completed the evening prior to the event and Rotary members packaged and distributed to the residents who came.  It was obvious to all of us that most everyone who received a food box needed our assistance.
The CG Rotary club was grateful that we were able to provide this service to our community.
We plan a second event in the coming weeks. Anyone interested in making a donation to assist our efforts can send a check to the CG Rotary Club, PO Box 11301, Casa Grande AZ 85130.
 
Rotarian's and their spouses or family members assisted in the distribution. Thank you to Steve and Carolann D, Brian and Shelly G, Louie and Carrie S, Matt H, Randy and Anita L, Nick D. Don K, Ed V and his family, Fernando C, Dave and Elly R, and the staff and management of Eva's Mexican Restaurant.
