We have distributed thousands of books (some bilingual) to children of migrant workers, children in foster care, and many Sarasota and Manatee County families in need. "Books For Kids" presentations by Rotary Club members at a Sarasota elementary school provided 1300 books to 300 first and second graders during the past school year. A team of Rotarians also has presented the "Josh the Otter" water safety program to many classes of kindergartners.

Hundreds of families received nutritional assistance through our 5-year partnership with All Faiths Food Bank to stock and staff a school-based food pantry at a Title I elementary school in Sarasota. Additionally, our members have implemented food distribution projects in conjunction with Harvest House and Children's Guardian Fund, bringing nutrition, literacy, and family-bonding time to many homes and hundreds of children.
