Hunger champions volunteered for our 55k mealpack weekend in Bolton and Wilmslow in April 2018
Since the launch of Rise Against Hunger’s meal
packing program in 2005, Rotarians have packaged more than 20 million
meals for distribution around the globe. Rotary is a critical link to
helping Rise Against Hunger meet the United Nations goal of ending world
hunger by 2030.
Rotarians have now packaged meals with Rise Against
Hunger in 11 countries, including the UK where the Rotary Club of
Warrington hosted the first ever UK event in August 2016. 29 clubs from
D1285 packaged 102,000 meals for a school feeding program in the slums
of Kibera, Kenya. The meals not only provide much needed nutrition for
the children, but encourage attendance at school, helping to provide an
education and giving the children an opportunity to break out of the
cycle of poverty.
Rise Against Hunger offers Rotary clubs the
opportunity to host hands-on international service project in your
district. Rise Against Hunger distribute the meals packaged by
volunteers to those in need around the globe.
We hosted Rise Against Hunger meal
packs in Bolton and Wilmslow in April 2018, and are now in the early stages of planning for the next district mealpack.
