A date of 14th April 2018 has been set for the 2nd Rotary 1285 50k mealpack for Rise Against Hunger in Bolton.

Venue will be Sharples High School, Hill Cot Rd, Bolton BL1 8SN.

The Rotary Club of Bolton Lever and Rise Against Hunger are joining forces in the fight against hunger. More than 200 volunteers, Rotarians and community groups will pack 50,0000 meals for the world’s hungry on 14th April at Sharples School, Bolton.

A further event is being planned in at a school in Wilmslow on 15th April 2018 (which will use the same eventbrite page)

Rise Against Hunger meal packing events are volunteer based programmes that package highly nutritious dehydrated meals, comprised of rice, soya, vegetables and 23 essential vitamins and minerals.

This will be the 3rd Rotary sponsored Rise Against Hunger meal packing event in the North West of England. It builds upon the success of the previous meal packs in Warrington and at the Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland conference in Manchester.

Rise Against Hunger gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, they have provided over 225 million meals in 73 countries.

How to get involved

The meal packing will take place on Saturday 14th April 2018. We need pledges of either

· volunteers to cover 2 or 4 hour packing shifts.

· And / or donations (suggested £50pp to cover £13k food cost)

Each attendee is also asked to bring a food item (like tinned beans, tinned / packet soup, pasta etc) for distribution to local food banks within our district.

We would welcome involvement from Rotary Clubs in the North West and can come and talk to your club about how to get involved.

This is an ideal team building event for local businesses, with employees who want to get involved in a hands on humanitarian project. Donations can also be made via our BT mydonate event page

The event is open to volunteers from Church groups, Youth organisations, Community groups, Clubs and Service organisations. Individual volunteers and family groups are also very welcome to join us

This family friendly event is open to volunteers of all ages. Children are welcome, (age 5 and above) when accompanied by an adult.
