Following the success of our first Tackling Hunger event on 22nd April 2018,  Kenilworth and other Heart of England Rotary Clubs, supported by our Project Partners: Rise Against Hunger, King Henry VIII School and The Trussell Trust, are pleased to announce that we are holding a follow up event on Sunday 7th April 2019.


  • 815 million people in the world don’t get the food they need to live a healthy life

  • 1,182,954 three-day emergency food supplies were given by Trussell Trust to people in crisis in 2016/17


On Sunday 7th April 2019 at King Henry VIII School, Coventry, our Tackling Hunger event will:


  • bring together 300 volunteers from across the community


  • pack over 50,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger’s overseas schools feeding programme


  • support the UK Trussell Trust by collecting foodbank donations


To achieve this, we need to raise £12,500 for the meal pack ingredients and would also like to raise a further £1,000 as a donation to the Trussell Trust.   

As at the beginning of February, we have received pledges of £6,455 towards our target.


You can help by volunteering to help pack meals on the day, helping raise money by organising fun events, making a personal donation or by sponsoring the event.


Get involved, please help us make a difference!
