Rotarians in District 7040 believe that no child should ever go to bed hungry so Saturday 24 January 2015 Rotary clubs throughout Eastern Ontario, Nunavut, Western Quebec, and Northern New York joined together with their communities in a Rotary Day of Service to support our local food banks, food pantries and soup kitchens.
 
The District-wide event was a huge success. 20 clubs, 6 Rotaract clubs and a Rotary Community Corps participated. One club added a new member. Clubs in Watertown NY and Ottawa ON were featured on local TV. Participants said that the events increased club spirit, built teamwork and increased visibility in the community. Clubs want to do a "bigger and better" event in the coming Rotary year.
 
Rotary Days was a great initiative that will bring even more benefit in years to come.
