Over ten years ago, then Rotary President Elizabeth de Groot spearheaded what has become the annual Easter Hamper project to provide healthy Easter food to local families in need. Since the Wasaga Beach Ministerial Food Bank has been unable to provide Easter meals, The Rotary Club of Wasaga Beach stepped up and worked in concert with The Food Bank to fill this need.
The Rotary club purchases all the food from local suppliers and gathers with Rotary family members to assemble the hampers the day before distribution day. This hands-on service project allows everyone to get involved and contribute to making a difference in our community. On March 26, there were 14 volunteers packing 400 hampers.

The Wasaga Beach Ministerial Food Bank is one of twenty-five local charities which receives funds from The Rotary Club ‘s Corvette Lottery, to help the Food Bank serve their clients throughout the year.

The Rotary Easter Hamper project is a wonderful example of how The Rotary Club of Wasaga Beach provides Hope in our Community.
