SLP Food Projects

Kiwanis clubs are not the only groups hosting food-related projects. Here are nine examples of how members of Kiwanis’ Service Leadership Programs are helping tackle the hunger crisis.

AKTION CLUB
Members of the Hendry Aktion Club, along with the LaBelle Kiwanis Club, gave out free bread and baked goods during a grand reopening and diaper drive at the LaBelle Kiwanis Thrift Store in Florida.

BUILDERS CLUB
Humans aren’t the only living creatures that need food. Members of the Christiansburg Middle School Builders Club in Virginia provided 200 pounds of pet food to seniors who couldn’t afford to feed their pets.

CKI
The Caribbean Maritime University CKI Club in Jamaica teamed up with the Kiwanis Club of Eastern Kingston and Port Royal to prepare food at a soup kitchen in January. 

CKI members from the University of Aruba assembled nearly 200 food baskets for families.

K-KIDS
Two Missouri K-Kids members lend Mother Earth a hand by sorting leftover kindergarten meals into recyclable and compostable material. Their efforts have played a key role in reducing school lunch waste by more than 55%.

KEY CLUB
The Key Club at Woodstock North High School in Illinois has volunteered for and completed food drives for local food pantries.

The Mauston High School Key Club in Wisconsin raised nearly US$28,000 for a local food pantry.

Key Club members at Bloomfield High School in New Jersey donated nearly 230 boxes of cereal to a local food pantry.
