Hunger Alleviation

The District 410-E Hunger Alleviation Portfolio coordinator is DC Carol Browne.

    Many clubs participate in projects that help feed hungry people. I conducted a survey, with electronic feedback, to ask clubs what projects they do, and if they need my input to help with anything. Based on this, and questions that have arisen in the past, I attach some documents which may help.on only.

    Word Documents – These slips are given out by Lions Cowies Hill at monthly food collection. They can be adapted for use by your club if you would like to do so.

    PowerPoint – Sign that can be printed for displaying at Food Collection point. 

    PDF - Information on feeding babies and young children. Clubs may get requests for help for this high risk group. This page gives information on foods that are suitable to use, expensive commercial baby food is not always needed.

    PDF - General notes on food choices for food collection

    PDF - Food requirements for a family of 4 (for a month), shows economical food choices to supply a food for a balanced eating plan. Can be adapted to be used to make up short term food assistance packages. 

    PDF - Food safety in soup kitchens, for use by the club or organisations that are supported who have soup kitchens

    PDF – Cost of energy and protein

      DC Carol has completed the first of the books that she have been working on. The intention is that clubs can share with organisations who they help out with food. Better planning of meals and menus usually results in cost savings, and usually makes the menu healthier. This means the money for food can go further. 
      DC Carol is working on the second book which has ideas for dishes and recipes.
