For over a decade, the Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club and the Santee Food Bank have been working side-by-side in helping Santee families in need.  The collaboration comes in many forms from purchasing much needed refrigeration units with the help of Rotary District Grants to helping the Santee branch of the US Post Office with their Stamp Out Hunger Drive sorting, weighing food items donated by postal patrons and then delivering food products to the food bank for distribution.
Most recently, the Santee Lakeside Rotary club issued a $3,000 District grant to help support the food bank's effort to provide COVID relief to families needing a hand up.  This past weekend, the club  delivered food items to shut in seniors in mobile home parks throughout the City of Santee.  As People of Action, club members enjoyed the project so much that they adopted one of the mobile parks for ongoing monthly delivery service.
