  10. Rise Against Hunger - 


    Status: Completed, April 6, 2019  

    Location: Newbury Park High School  

    Project Description: A meal packaging event was hosted in the Newbury Park High School gym.  On Saturday, April 6th, 2019, 12,312 meals were packaged with the help of over 75 volunteers  from all over our community. Each meal consisted of rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and  vitamin packets that were sealed in packages that could feed up to 6 people once hot water has  been added. This project would not have been possible without the financial support of the  Rotary clubs of Westlake Village and Newbury Park, our own Interact club, as well as donations  from various members of our community.  

    Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary resources to end hunger  by 2030. From the implementation of sustainable community development projects to the meal  packaging program, they strive to make a global impact on hunger by building resilience, self sufficiency, and empowerment among the communities they work in and with. A few examples  of their approaches to this goal include safety net programs that provide nourishment as well  as additional skills training or services that support the difficult journey out of poverty, crisis  relief to ensure aid is efficiently and effectively deployed to and received by communities when  it is needed most, and agriculture and income-generating initiatives that promote improved  agricultural methods, business skills, and market access to increase individuals' earning  potential and thus their consistent access to food.  

    To contribute towards this UN sustainable development goal, Rise Against Hunger partnered  with the North Country Mission of Hope to ensure these meals were administrated at schools in  Nicaragua to encourage attendance. There used to be major attendance issues at the Hilario  Sanchez School in Nicaragua. Students were not attending school to work in their family  businesses to eat. If kids can get a warm meal at school, their parents are more likely to send  them, recognizing the importance of that nutrition-sometimes their only meal of the day. With  meal packaging events like these, things are changing for those kids in Nicaragua. Attendance  rates are nearly 100% and academic performance has increased. One warm meal a day is  leading to literacy.  

    Our Club Involvement: Our club supported local Interact clubs to host this event by providing  manpower and donations
