This week in Rotary
Thursday's Regular Meeting  on February 21, 2019 was at Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque.  Tom Cullen arranged for a Burrito Breakfast from Jimmy's Cafe. 22 Del Sol Rotarians enjoyed breakfast and heard a presentation on the work of Roadrunner Food Bank by Brian Brown.  During the meeting Tom Cullen present Brian a check to Road Runner for $3500 which Tom said would buy 5 tons of Beans and Rice.  
Brian explained how Roadrunner feeds 70000 people a week in New Mexico.  He also told about their 2nd Chance Program which gives Non-Violent offenders a  second chance to learn a job and become employed.  Especially interesting was how Roadrunner helps the ex- offenders qualify for CDL licenses and become truck drivers on the 16 semis that are operated by Road Runner.
