The PIT Stop program provides meals for people in Kamloops who might not have any access to any other food thought the day. Despite the COVID-19 situation, they wanted to continue feeding the vulnerable population in Kamloops. However, they knew they needed to change how they delivered those meals. Our team from REMAX prepared the food and put into countertainers. From there, Rick Winjack delivered the food to Glen, who brought it to the people. We enjoyed it so much and plan to do another PIT STOP.

The 7 Rotaries in Kamloops as well as Rotary and Interac Clubs host a twice yearly Rotary Food Drive. This spring of 2020, the Food Bank needed the food more than ever. The Rotary Food Drive brought in 70,000 lbs of food from Kamloops Neighbourhoods. I am a Rotarian with the Rotary Club of Kamloops. We put on Christopher Sequin Dinners (for families) and put on Chefs in the City, where 20  plus restaurants and 11 breweries and wineries participate in celebrating good food and drink in Kamloops.

Awards are given out for best restaurant and best winery or brewery. We also participate in the Starfish Backpack program (to feed school children), Rotary Food Drives and anything else we can do to help out in Kamloops and area.

We also have a Bursary Program. Yearly we have an exchange student and this year it is Lyse Damman. Lyse Damman lives in each home for approximately 3 months and is in Canada for approximatley 9  months. I enjoyed taking her skiing at Sun Peaks.
