Current Kids Against Hunger Packing Events....

Kids Against Hunger Update----Meals to Nepal Earthquake Victims---
The Rotary Clubs of Menomonie (Noon and Sunrise) funded a program, Kids Against Hunger in 2013.  Meals are packaged at a packing event by organizations in the area and of these meals, they are distributed throughout Dunn County and the world to feed people that are facing Hunger.   In the past few months, over 100,000 meals have been packaged with 60,000 of the meals headed to Nepal for the victims of the recent devastating earthquake.  The 60,000 meals were combined with many other Kids Against Hunger organizations which brought the total meals to be sent to Nepal, at just over 1,000,000 nutritious meals.
Is your organization interested in a participating in a packing event???    The Rotary Clubs of Menomonie and Kids Against Hunger group are always looking for new packing events.   Contact the morning or noon clubs if you are interested in sponsoring a packing event.
In the fall of 2014 The Rotary Clubs of Menomonie shipped 17 pallets of meals to the Philippines via the "Kids Against Hunger" Mankato location.  17 pallets contains a total of 121,176 meals.  This a major commitment by the Rotary Clubs of Menomonie to address Hunger in the Local Area and the World.   Another packing event resulted in over 50,000 meals going to Haiti to continue to support their recovery for the hurricanes. 
The Rotary Clubs of Menomonie also support the Shelter Box Program which furnishes portable shelters for people around the world that are experiencing war, typhoons, hurricanes and have no place to live or any shelter to go to.
The Rotary clubs support the Eradication of Polio in the World as well.  Polio Plus in an International program that has donated and dispensed over 300,000,000 doses of polio vaccine to the people of the world over the last 15 years.   Eradication is the goal and we are very close.  Today there are only three countries in the world that have polio cases thanks in part to The Rotary International Polio Plus Program.  This program works with organizations throughout the world to provide access to the Polio vaccine.  
We are almost there, Polio eradication is just a country or two away. 


The Menomonie Sunrise Rotary Club

The Menomonie Sunrise Rotary Club was chartered in 1994.   We are a 501c4 organization that looks for ways to do good in the community and world we live in.   We currently have 28 members and are very active in the community in a variety of ways.  We worked on major projects such as a night vision system for the Fire Department such that they can see if someone is in a burning building before they enter.    The Sunrise Rotary Club also outfitted the Dunn County Sheriffs' cars with the first AEDs (defibulators) carried in the patrol units.   We have refurbished the Caddie Woodlawn site south of Menomonie with new siding and many volunteer hours, and lots of paint.
Our accomplishments continue to grow as we are now a full partner with the Noon Rotary Club of Menomonie in a Kids Against Hunger campaign.
