On Saturday October 15, 2017 at 8 am till noon, Huron Township members and guest will meet at Henry Ford Community College along with members and guest from about 15 other local Rotary Clubs to package 100,000 meal packets. Each meal packet cost $0.28 to assemble. Each packet contains 14 oz of rice, soy and other dried vegetables that provide 21 vitamins and minerals. Each packet will feed up to 6 adults or 10 children one meal. it is not a meal as we know it but for the masses of people that are starving and do not know where their next meal is coming from, it could be a matter of life or death. These meal packets can be used by themselves when added to 6 to 10 cups of boiling water or as a base for other meals when other types of protein are available.
These local Rotary Clubs have chosen to take on this project because right here in the Detroit area 1 in 5 children go to bed hungry and world wide over 14,500 children die daily due to lack of nutrition. You can help by donating money or time to the project. It is going to take $28,000 to assemble 100,000 packets and it is going to take some 400 volunteers to pull this off. The volunteers will work 1 to 2 hour shifts and the whole project should take only 4 hours. if you would like to help in this project you can contact any Huron Township Rotary member for details. if you don't know one please contact Jerry Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org we need money or your time or both. I guarantee you will come away with you heart feeling much bigger than when you went into it.
Remember this, "One Person Can Make a Difference, Let That One Person be YOU."
