Rotary Feeding the World

By Milan Eagle Media

Hunger is real. More than 10,000 children in Washtenaw County are considered “food insecure” and receive emergency food from local food pantries. World-wide, over 14,000 children younger than age 12 die from hunger related disease. This is a continued epidemic across the globe and this past weekend the Rotary Club of Milan joined by The Kid’s Coalition Against Hunger (KCAH) continued their efforts to make a difference.
The Kids Coalition Against Hunger (KCAH), is a 501c3 humanitarian food relief organization whose mission is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and feed starving children throughout the world. The KCAH travels throughout Michigan putting on packing events where the coordinated community volunteers work together in an assembly line setting to produce packets of dry food. These packets provide enough nutrition for six adults or twelve children for a day.
On March 10, 2018 Milan’s Rotary invited the community to join in their second Annual event with KCAH called “Milan Feeding the World” at the Milan Free Methodist Church. In just a couple of hours 120 community members of all ages came together to pack food packets with the help of the KCAH. Packets will be given locally to Compassion Ministries, stored for natural disaster response, and shipped overseas.
Milan Rotary is excited and proud of the community interest and excitement over the event. Some organizations included were the American Heritage Girls, Milan Youth Council, Milan Girls Track Team, Milan Third Hand, Milan Free Methodist Church members, Boy Scouts Troop 446, Milan High School Robotics Team, National Honor Society, Milan City Council Members, and neighboring Rotary club members from Chelsea as well as the Rotary District 6380 Governor Barry Fraser and his wife Carolyn and District Governor Elect Jane Mc Manus and husband Mike.
This was a true community event. “Milan Feeding the World” empowers our community members from all walks of life to work together to feed children and their families from around the corner and around the world.
Thanks to all workers and the generous donors who helped raise $7,000 for this event.
