Hunger Strike

Hunger Strike is a fun and friendly team-based fundraising competition that culminates in a one-day in-person bowling event where club and community members come together to celebrate their efforts and for some, receive sweet prizes. Hunger Strike benefits Harvest Against Hunger, an organization that works with farmers, truckers, volunteers and others to bring valuable skills and resources into hunger relief efforts in communities across Washington state and beyond. This event is a powerful way for Rotary clubs to engage with their local communities and demonstrate the impact of Rotary.
