Hunger

Hunger is a problem without borders. We’re offering grants, programs and initiatives to help Lions make huge strides in providing meals and nutrition for those in need—in hopes that one day no child will ever have to live without knowing when their next meal will come. 

 

Global Statistics

 

More than 820 million people do not have enough to eat, corresponding to about one in every nine people in the world.

A broader look at food insecurity beyond severe levels and hunger reveals that an additional 1.3 billion people have experienced food insecurity, meaning they did not have regular access to nutritious and sufficient food.

The combination moderate and severe levels of food insecurity brings the estimated total to 26.4% of the world population, amounting to 2 billion people.

Hunger Grant

LCIF offers grants to Lions districts in amounts from US$10,000 to US$100,000. The goal of the LCIF Hunger Pilot Grant Program is to help Lions support school based feeding programs, food banks, feeding centers, and similar facilities that provide food to people when they need it most.

You Can Feed the World

Defeating hunger is a huge undertaking. It will require the effort of everyone, everywhere—and all Lions. To begin making a difference, you can make a donation today.
