Rich Schiafo on Food Recovery (Aired on January 27 and January 28, 2018)

Food Recovery in the Hudson Valley (Aired on January 27 & 28, 2018) Rich Schiafo of the Hudson Valley Regional Council returns to RadioRotary to tell the listeners about the national problem of food waste. Of the many astonishing statistics Mr. Schiafo discusses, perhaps the most alarming is that40% of all the food produced in the United States goes to waste, much of it landing in landfills where it contributes to the production of methane, a global-warming gas. Some of the food is left in the farmers’ fields, where it can be taken and used by gleaning—going through the field by hand and collecting the remaining food. Another waste is food that has been deemed imperfect or ugly in some way, but that is perfectly edible despite the flaws. Listeners will learn about the different interpretations of use-by or sell-by dates. There are many aspects to food recovery and prevention of food waste, with volunteers throughout the Hudson Valley making the effort to get otherwise disposable food into food pantries and shelters where it will be welcomed by the hungry.

Rotary International Convention From Atlanta GA Show # 10 (Aired on February 3 and February 4th 2018)

Regular RadioRotary Co-host Sarah O’Connell turns guest for a show devoted to her own Rotary Club and its activities.
The Rotary Club of Millbrook has been doing good in the world for more than 45 years now. The main way it funds its projects is by providing a service to Millbrook and the surrounding region with a Business Directory. The Directory contains much useful community information, but its real strength comes from the paid advertising, advertising that in turn supports the community as 100% of the profit from the ads is returned to the community. While Millbrook Rotary also has various social events, from weekly lunches with interesting speakers to evening parties, these are paid for by the members—in part by “fines” or “good/bad news” announcement paid for with dollars (and more) deposited in a plastic pig at each meeting. The Rotary Foundation, supported primarily by donations by Rotarians, also contributes to specific projects, recently one providing school supplies for needy families in the Millbrook and Webatuck districts. In addition financially supporting local nonprofits, Millbrook Rotary also encourages literacy annually with dictionaries for elementary-school students in Millbrook and vicinities and a graduation gift of a book of their own choosing for every local eighth-grader and promotes peace by participating in annual youth exchanges.

Rtn. Mike Polasek Talks About The Dangers Of Opioids Addiction (Aired On January 20 and January 21, 2018)

Opioid Abuse Awareness and Prevention (Aired on January 20 & 32, 2018)
Rotarian

Mike Polasek (LaGrange) reports to the RadioRotary team about a major effort on the part of local Rotary Clubs (LaGrange, Millbrook, Fishkill) to obtain a grant from The Rotary Foundation to fund awareness and prevention programs in the Mid-Hudson Valley, although Mr. Polasek emphasizes that opioid addiction is a worldwide program that affects all ages and all classes. Opioid abuse often starts with an original prescription for pain relief from an injury or surgical procedure, but the drug becomes a necessity for the person addicted, a
person who then may seek out street drugs to replace the prescription. The result is not only the misery of addiction but often overdose and death. The grant from The Rotary Foundation, focusing on adolescents 15 to 10 years old, would support awareness through social media and prevention by working with agencies already in the field, such as SAMSHA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services) and MARC (Mid-Hudson Addiction Recovery Centers, Inc.).
