Rotary Food Drive for WARM

Food Drive is partnership between Rotary, WARM, Kroger

The Rotary Club of Westerville annually conducts the Rotary WARM Holiday Food Drive to benefit the local food pantry of the Westerville Area Resource Ministry (WARM). The Holiday Food Drive began in 2003, launched by our affiliated Rotaract Club at Otterbein University, when the Rotaract Club was led by sophomore Chris Blackburn, son of that year’s Rotary Club of Westerville President Tom Blackburn. 

Drive 2020The Rotary Club of Westerville Sunrise has become a partner in this event and Kroger since its inception has been the drive’s major sponsor.


The food drive takes place in neighborhoods across Westerville. Volunteers are sought to be Team Captains, Drivers and Runners.

Details of the 2021 Rotary WARM Holiday Food Drive have just been released.

The drive seeks to reach 18,000 homes this year, a 4,000-home increase from 2020). So more Team Captains than ever are needed.

The 2021 timeline has been set as follows:

  • Team Captain training: to be completed remotely (1-2 weeks prior, TBD)
  • Team Captain’s pick-up of bags and materials: Nov. 18–24 (times TBD) 
  • Empty bag drop-offs at neighborhood homes: Nov. 26–Nov 29 
  • Filled bag pick-ups in neighborhoods (official Rotary WARM HFD day): Dec. 4 (8:30am–noon)
