EndHunger 3.6 began six years ago as a project for the Madison Rotary Club. It started as a volunteer-based food packaging and distribution event, and in its first year distributed over fifty thousand meals to local agencies.
With food insecurity a continuing problem, the project continued to grow, doubling every year. The last full packaging event attracted a thousand volunteers and distributed two hundred and fifty thousand meals, involved over thirty other Rotary Clubs, and gave food to dozens of agencies throughout the nine NJ counties that comprise Rotary International District 7475.
Due to the pandemic, the project has evolved into using a combination of packaging events and pre-boxed distribution. End Hunger was able to distribute more than one million meals to needy agencies in twelve counties.
We held two community packaging events recently - on March 5, 2022 an event at Raritan Valley Community College, and on March 12, 2022 an event was held at Caldwell University. Between the two events, almost 150,000 meals were packaged.
A third event was held in Mercer County. Differing from the first two, this event was a food distribution event where canned goods, pasta, mac and cheese and similar foods were distributed to the hungry in Mercer. Special thanks to Rotarian Bill Coleman for chairing this event.
