Salvation Army Foodpacking
Alan Hayward & Peter Ross commented that there had been a useful meeting with the Salvation Army.
The food box packing project has come to the end of any useful on-going involvement for either them or us.
The new model increasingly being utilised will be the selection by clients, themselves, of the relevant products they require.
We will be able to continue the Rotary association with the Salvation Army from time to time. Amongst ideas canvassed was the suggestion that on Monday 4th December, 9am – 2.00pm,  our combined Clubs’ team might provide assistance with the selection and categorisation of a huge number of children’s Christmas gifts collected by the Blues immediately prior.  [The “Fill the Blues Bus” 2.0 campaign: ]. We would be part of a major effort that day comprising about 80+ volunteers at Mt Wellington. 
Peter Ross outlined the process that would be followed with the Drury and Papakura Clubs at the end of the year with the planned restoration of a vegetable run around some of the local market gardens. The collection would be based on Manukau. Very much at the development stage - RYLArians would be involved.  Drury had previously done this run for over 20 years, before its curtailment.
More details to follow.
