Kids Against Hunger 2nd Annual Food Packaging with Rotary
On March 28, 2015, the Ajax and Pickering Rotary Clubs, along with the Port Perry Angels Girls Softball Club, Harmony Highway Quartet, The Food Pantry food bank of Cannington and various other volunteering groups, and individuals, packaged meals for the Kids Against Hunger Program. Each bag contains 6 nutritionally balanced meals comprised of a soy protein base, a dehydrated blend of six vegetables, and a vitamin & mineral powder. The meals will be distributed to local food banks and organizations, as well as shipped overseas to help feed people around the world.
This is the second such packaging drive that the Ajax Rotary Club, with the help of the Pickering Rotary Club, has held. In 2014, 42,000 meals were packaged and distributed. The goal for 2015 was 100,000 meals. This achievement now sets the new Canadian record for the highest number of meals packaged and would not have been possible without the help of the many volunteers. We Thank You!
