The Rotary Club of Medicine Hat enjoyed an opportunity for service, with a visit to Prairie Gleaners on Saturday morning.  Prairie Gleaners provides the basics of a nourishing soup from donated produce that is either not capable of making the sale specifications for grocery stores or has been donated by the community.  They get a wide variety of produce and ship the product both internationally as well as providing it at the local Mustard Seed.  Waste product from the process is used by local livestock farms, so nothing goes to waste.
6 Rotarians were joined by 2 spouses, and combined to package 600 bags of product.  Each bag makes 125 cups of soup, so the effort will provide over 75,000 cups of soup.  The event  produced positive feedback by those that participated and we anticipate a desire to return on a regular basis.  President Terry Partis took a few photos of the work.
