Event description
The Rotary Club of Winnetka-Northfield, The Winnetka Community House, The Volunteer Center, and other local community groups, will pack 100,000 highly nutritious meals for hungry people in Nicaragua and Local Food Pantries. 

We will have up to 12 tables of 12 volunteers working 2 hour shifts.  The first shift starts at 8:30 and the last shift finishes at 4:00.  
Sign up for a table using the tickets above.  A participant fee of $25 is required of all participants, which will help offset the cost of bulk food, packaging materials and transportation.  Participants will also pay a small transaction fee. Each participant will receive one complimentary raffle ticket (more may be purchased at $20 each/ 6 for $100).  Youth groups wishing to participate but finding the fee to be a barrier may ask the Rotary club for help in securing a sponsor for their table.  Email with your request.
We will also need "floaters" to help with sign in, moving packing and food materials and other event activities. You can sign up to be a floater as well.

 We also need to raise funds to pay for these meals.  Each meal costs $0.28 for materials, transport and distribution in Nicaragua, so we need to raise nearly $30,000.  You can help in several ways:

Make a donation to the project via PayPal by clicking here.
Purchase a raffle ticket at the event or by contacting Heidi at .  Each ticket costs $20, or you may purchase 6 tickets for $100. Each participant will receive one free raffle ticket!  See the article on this page for our great list of prizes.
