Last week we were invited to attend a meeting of the Rotary of Enumclaw to present on the topic of ‘The Cloud Enabled Business‘. The group was very engaged and participated in a lively discussion about Google, Box, DocuSign and WordPress. We were able to share examples of how these technologies can be used in businesses of all kinds to reduce technology costs, improve mobile access to information and increase productivity.
It was an honor to have the Rotary Club donate 300 pounds of food to the local food bank.
Since its founding in 1982, Rotary First Harvest – a program of Rotary District 5030 (RFH) has collected and distributed nearly 150 million pounds of produce.
RFH acts as a conduit between farmers and the programs that serve hungry individuals and families in our region. Farmers are occasionally left with surplus fruits and vegetables that can’t be sold due to minor imperfections (such as carrots with two legs or apples that are the wrong size or color), or might not be harvested because of a glut on the market.
Traditionally, this nutritious produce would be sent to a landfill or left to rot in the fields. Instead, RFH directs it to those in need.
RFH’s mission is:
- To feed the hungry with surplus nutritious food
- Access and improve food distribution and transportation systems
- Develop innovative hunger relief solutions
- Replicate concept of RFH.
