Nevada City Rotary hosted a drive-through Canned Food Drive to support Nevada County Food Bank on Saturday February 13 2021.  During the drive through, we raised over 1,100 lbs of food for the Food Bank of Nevada County!  Thank you to all our community members who so generously dropped off non-perishable food in quantities ranging from single cans and bags to full trunk loads!  The food will meet the urgent needs of our community during the extended pandemic.
The Club used the occasion to draw our winning Restaurant Raffle ticket. And the WINNER IS ROTARY SCHOLAR COURTNEY ANDES_MCCULLOUGH!

A big thank you to Dave's Auto Repair at 747 Zion St in Nevada City 7 Hills District for use of his facility!
Hear what Executive Director Nicole McNeely had to say about the day.

Restaurant Raffle:  A big thank you to our participating restaurants:

The Ham Stand ~ Lefty's Grill ~ Sopa Thai ~ Bistro 221
Twelve 28 Kitchen ~ Casa Las Katerinas ~ One11
Three Forks Bakery & Brewing Co. ~ Sergio's Café
 Tofanelli's ~ Friar Tuck's ~ New Moon Café 
All proceeds from the raffle will help fund the many Nevada City Rotary youth and community service initiatives. The club sponsors local youth programs such as Girls Who Code, an after school program that encourages and trains middle school girls for careers in technology, Rotary youth leadership camps, academic scholarships, and high school music and speech competitions.  
Because of the COVID pandemic, the Club again needed to postpone the Hungry Games event until March 2022.  A new additional raffle will be organized in conjunction with the 2022 event at Miners Foundry.  In the meantime, Nevada City Rotary is moving ahead to complete this year’s raffle and partnering to meet the urgent needs of our community!
