The Mesa Baseline Rotary has been fighting hunger in partnership with our local United Food bank for many years with generous grants from our fundraising projects. We know how to fight difficult battles. In fact, our international partnership in Guaymas Mexico has been battling childhood deafness for over twenty years with thousands of children having their hearing restored through that annual event. We have also joined with over 1 million other Rotarians worldwide to eradicate polio from every nation on earth.|
Now the Mesa Baseline Rotary brings this same passion and commitment to our inaugural Hike for Hunger, which benefits United Food Bank. This hike allows us to mobilize as a community to help with this important cause. Currently, Arizona is tied as the worst state in the U.S. when it comes to child hunger, and the 5th worst for overall food insecurity.
-1 in 4 children; 1 in 5 adults; and 1 in 7 seniors struggle with hunger.
-More than 888,100 Arizonans receive emergency food assistance annually.
-United Food Bank distributes over 45,200 meals daily, 365 days per year.
Please join the Mesa Baseline Rotary club and United Food Bank in this hike to end hunger here in Arizona.
