SUMMIT, NJ - Summit-New Providence Rotary President Jim Fleischmann, and Secretary Joe Steiner, were among the Rotarians who recently volunteered at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ).

With its motto of “Service above Self,” Rotary encourages its members to get involved in the community. About 100 Rotarians from various Union County clubs sorted non-perishable food that will be distributed throughout New Jersey by the food bank.

The CFBNJ began in Summit forty years ago. First operating out of the trunk of founder Kathleen DiChiara’s car, it now occupies a 285,000 square-foot facility in Hillside.
 
Today, the organization distributes 43 million pounds of food a year to more than 1,000 non-profit programs, as well as more than 400 programs served by its partner organizations. It feeds 900,000 hungry people in 18 New Jersey counties.

Summit Rotary was founded in 1922, and later merged with the New Providence club. In addition to its service projects, the club’s major thrust is scholarships for college-bound seniors from Summit and New Providence high schools.

The group meets for Monday lunch at the Grand Summit Hotel at 12:15. For more information about Rotary’s activities, as well as contacts for membership or other inquiries, visit snprotary.org .
