Members of the Waynesville Rotary Club, Haywood Rotary Club and Sunrise Rotary Club were outside Ingles Friday morning loading boxes of food into cars that will be delivering holiday meals to families in need.

Volunteers paired up to form 24 total delivery teams, each of which received a  route to follow as they distribute each of the boxes to a family.

The rotary clubs will be providing meals for more than 400 families in Haywood County.

In the 17 total years that the clubs have been delivering food, the three rotary clubs have donated more than $120,000 and provided 5,600 meals.
