Hunger Hurts! The members of the Rotary Club of Staten Island recognize that Hunger Hurts and are addressing this by raising funds and working with different groups to help others as they face the challenge of feeding themselves and their families each day. The Rotary Club of Staten Island delivered $4,000 worth of food Tuesday to Blessed Sacrament Church.

It's all part of the group's ongoing campaign called "Hunger Hurts," which aims to help those in need put food on the table.
Members say they usually save food donations for the holiday season, but under the new initiative, they say they will be fighting hunger all year long.
"We continue to do it at Thanksgiving time, but to do it at other times of the year when food is not as abundant," said John Amodio of the SI Rotary Club.  Special thanks to MET Food for helping us stretch those dollars and adding more!‪#‎StVincentDePaul‬‪#‎BlessedSacramentStatenIsland‬ ‪#‎HungerHurts‬‪#‎StatenIslandRotaryClub‬ ‪#‎METFood‬
