Welcome to our Tackling Hunger event webpages:

 

815 million people in the world don’t get the food they need to live a healthy life

The Rotary Club of Bolton Lever wanted to help those suffering from hunger overseas and in this country.  Working with other Rotary Clubs and our project partners - Rise Against Hunger, The Trussell Trust, and Sharples School - we held a special one day event:

 

bringing together 400 volunteers

to pack 50,000 meals for children overseas

and to support local UK Foodbanks and other donations
