Relieving the Hunger
"Almost 1 billion people across the globe will go to bed hungry tonight, 200 million of them children." (USAID). Lions have an opportunity to show the strength of our worldwide network during a special service action campaign, "Relieving the Hunger."
Relieve the Hunger to benefit 25 million people and be part of the Centennial Service Challenge!
During December and January, we invite you and your club to join Lions around the world to help relieve hunger.
- Organize projects that mobilize your club members to make a difference in your community – by helping those who don't have enough to eat.
- Visit The Global FoodBanking Network or Feeding America for volunteer opportunities near you. Access the recorded webinars which featured experts from these two partner organizations.
- Consider other service projects such as preparing and delivering food baskets to families in need or planting a community vegetable garden.
