Filling Bellies, Feeding Minds: The Burlington Rotary Club is hosting our Spelling Bee in May 2024 to fill bellies and to feed minds in our community.  The club's 3-year food security initiative is increasing access to food to everyone in our region.  The club has partnered with the Intervale Center, Hunger Free VT, and Feeding Chittenden to provide volunteer hands, create translated food access videos, and advance the gleaning and food access program distribution at the Intervale.  Sound nourishment is the foundation for a healthy body that can concentrate and learn.  Literacy is the foundation of knowledge and success: Being literate enables one to follow their educational dreams and studies show that access to books during early childhood is a strong indicator of success later in life. 

The club is also a proud partner with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to provide monthly free books to kids in Burlington.  Please join us to support Filling Bellies, Feeding Minds as we strengthen the foundation of our community.

Tickets are available right here on our website's HOME PAGE!  It's going to BEE a blast!

(Rotary Members: this is our May meeting, creditable to your attendance record - so, we will see you all there!)
