The Rotary Club of Goleta took time April 30 to volunteer at an orange-picking event in collaboration with the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County.

The oranges were to be used for school lunch programs, as well as food for individuals and families in need.

Goleta Rotary participants had an enjoyable time performing a community service, and being a part of an effort that, in 2009, met the food needs of more than 155,000 individuals.
