The event is in conjunction with the Feeding Durham: Cans 4 Our Community, a Rotary-led community food drive. The downtown Durham and Southwest Durham Rotary clubs are partnering with the Durham County Department of Social Services, Duke University, North Carolina Central University, and Durham Technical Community College, through the Faculty/Staff Martin Luther King, Jr. Steering Committee and 2013-14 Durham Tech Student Senate, to support the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina and food pantries in Durham.

We are very excited about this opportunity to tie in the National Day of Service with the Rotary Club motto of "Service Above Self."

The Durham Tech food drive has already started and will continue through January 20. Donations of non-perishable food can be delivered to the Durham Tech Campus Harvest Food Pantry.
