Our community faces unprecedented challenges due to the economic fallout related to the COVID-19 public health crisis, including the increased demand for food assistance.  Responding to that need, the Rotary Club of Schaumburg A.M. donated $2,000 to the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry to meet the immediate need for help.  This donation in part was made possible by a Rotary District 6440 Foundation matching grant.
Schaumburg A.M. Rotary Club president Rev. Jerry Hays stated that "As Rotarians we are committed to service, especially in times such as we are experiencing now. It is a priority for us to assist others in need and supporting the food pantry fits that priority."
The Schaumburg Township Food Pantry is one of more than 700 partner agencies and programs that works in conjunction with the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) to distribute food to those in need in Cook County. GCFD is a member of Feeding America, a US-based nonprofit organization consisting of a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies.
Rotarians roll up their sleeves, leverage their personal relationships with local partners and businesses and take action that improves the lives of others at both the local and international levels through our community, vocational, international, youth and club service committees. 
Schaumburg A.M. Rotary meets most Wednesday mornings at Schaumburg’s Egg Harbor Café located at 1310 American Lane.  For more info visit
