Did you know that each night nearly 800 million people lions-100th-anniversarygo to bed hungry? This month, Lions are on a mission to decrease that statistic. This January, Lions and Lionesses all over the globe are working together to eliminate hunger in their communities, and you can help, too!

This particular week is officially the Worldwide Week of Service Against Hunger. While it may be too late to complete a project, it’s never too late to start planning a new one.

In Wisconsin alone, approximately 1 in 8 people struggle with hunger. Fortunately, there are resources available to help including local food banks, reduced school lunch programs and various special events. If you and your club are looking for a new project to complete in the near future, consider taking part in the fight against hunger.

To get started:

  1. Decide upon and plan your projectHost a service project that impacts hunger in your community. Help stock food at your local pantry, bag school lunches or come up with an idea of your own. Invite other members of your community or another local service club to join in.
  2. Promote your projectPublicize your project with the help of social media, signs and banners, press releases and more. A successful project involves lots of promotion – don’t be afraid to get creative!
  3. Report your projectAfter your project is complete, be sure to submit your MyLCI Service Activity Report. All service projects are still being put towards the Centennial Service Challenge.

Where there’s a need, there’s a Lion! Let’s work together to end hunger in our communities. From all of us at Lions Pride, thank you for your ongoing service.
