The Rotary Club of Moultrie was able to be participate in the USDA's "Farmers to Families" food box program. We missed the chance in October 2020 (by 1 day) so were very glad for another opportunity to come available with the program. We have partnered with the United Way of Colquitt County and Trinity Baptist Church to organize the event. Our food truck arrived on April 10 with 1100 30-pound boxes of food that we distributed *free* to anyone and everyone in our community. We gave away every single box - loading them into 312 different vehicles - and finished right before the rain started. Rotary members were on hand - along with almost 50 other volunteers - to unload and distribute the boxes as well as direct traffic during the event. This event was also submitted as part of the Zone 33-34 "Feed 10 Million" initiative.
