The Rotary Club of Pittwater cooked and served around one thousand breakfasts, less then previous years due to the weather, but enjoyed by those who ate bacon and egg and sausage and eggs rolls. All funds raised on the day for all activities,  food and drinks are divided between volunteer groups Rotary Club of Pittwater, Cottage Point Rural Fire Service, Lions Club of Avalon, Lions Club of Pittwater, SES Warringah/Pittwater and the Zonta Club of Northern Beaches, who were all also on hand on the day.  Larraine Hall, who organises Pittwater Rotary‚Äôs involvement, ensures the left over perishable food which is unable to be returned for refund is collected by Oz Harvest, a charity which collects excess food which would otherwise be discarded. This excess food is distributed to the vulnerable in Sydney. Check out their web site: http://www.ozharvest.org/ Photos by AJG
