Over 14,000 Meals Provided to Those in Need Locally
Belleville— October 29, 2022 — The Rotary Club of Belleville and a large group volunteers from the community came together yesterday to put together Kids Against Hunger meals. “We had a great group of people who volunteered to put these meals together for people in need.  Rotary Club members, elementary and high school students, lawyers, law clerks. friends and families all contributed their time to put together over 14,400 meals.” said Jennifer Savini, Chair of the Club’s Kids Against Hunger Committee.
Many families locally will benefit from this effort as the meals will be delivered to Gleaners Food Bank, United Way, Salvation Army and Grace Inn.  Some meals will also be shipped to Haiti to help with the humanitarian crisis there.  Kid’s Against Hunger Canada, a registered Canadian humanitarian charity, is committed to engage Canadians, especially youth, in helping to feed those who are hungry, malnourished and starving in Canada and around the world.
Funds from the Belleville Rotary Club and a generous donation from McDougall Insurance were used to purchase the ingredients, and volunteers came together at Loyalist College’s Shark Tank Pub to package and box up the food.
