Stop Hunger Now

The meal packaging programme was initiated in the USA in 2005 to distibute food and other life saving aids to the world's most vulnerable people. To date,  Stop Hunger Now camapaign has provided over 225 million meals to 74 countries, over 20 million of them packaged by Rotary members.

The Rotary Club of Warrington recently coordinated the first meal pack event in the UK. inviting neighbouring Clubs and other voluteers to help. In the two day event, 100,000  meals were packaged, for which over £25,000 has been raised to provide the ingredients. The "Warrington"packs are earmarked for school children in Kenya.

A dried meal pack contains rice, soya, dried vegetables and essential nutrients and has a shelf life of up to 2 years. Only hot water is required to make a nutritiuos meal for one adult for 3 days. More iinformation can be found at StopHungerNow.org
