Read about the work Rotary First Harvest is doing to feed hungry families in The New York Times’ annual “Giving” section. Rotary First Harvest, a charity based in Seattle, Washington, USA, collects surplus produce from local growers to distribute to area food banks. The feature story follows Rotary volunteers to the fields to glean (collect) fresh vegetables missed during the regular harvest.
The article not only recognizes Rotary First Harvest, a longtime project of District 5030, but it also draws attention to Rotary’s humanitarian mission and the good work Rotary clubs carry out worldwide.
Published every November, the Times special section on giving serves as the newspaper’s annual report on American philanthropy, with articles on private and corporate foundations, charities, and their beneficiaries. The Times has a daily circulation of nearly 1.9 million readers for its print and digital editions.
