Rotarians help feed hungry children during training event

Rotary Coordinators and Rotary Public Image Coordinators put service into action on 5 March during a training event at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois, USA.

The coordinators formed teams to bag 16,000 packages containing rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and 21 vitamins and minerals for Kids Against Hunger, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to reduce the number of undernourished or starving children in the world.  The Fox Valley chapter of Kids Against Hunger is sponsored by four Rotary clubs in Rock County, Wisconsin.

“We decided to do a hands-on service project to give them an activity to do together in great fellowship,” said Jennifer Jones, who served as moderator for the training event.  “The world has come together and it’s fascinating to see these people side by side packaging food.  ” The bags were donated to the Northern Illinois Food Bank to benefit undernourished children in the Chicago area.

See a video of the service project on Rotary Voices.
