Hermosa Beach Rotary sponsors the Certified Farmers Market. In addition to supporting our community, the market provides substantial funding for our Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)3, which we use to financially support these projects.
We offer an effective network of people who serve our local communities and people in need throughout the world.  Historically, Rotary was the first service club.  Formed in Chicago by successful businessmen who wanted to make a difference, round table formats intended an equal voice for all. Rotary International now has 1.4 million members- people of action around the world- solving problems large and small for people in need.  Fun fact, it was Rotary that mobilized in the early 80's to eradicate Polio - flash forward to 2019, it utilized its worldwide network to respond to COVID-19 as well as staffing food banks.
