Information for Hunger Chairperson

Information for Hunger Chairperson

Hunger Chairpersons serve at the district and multiple district levels, and are appointed by the district governor or council chairperson, respectively. Hunger Chairpersons support Lions and Leos engaged or interested in projects to alleviate hunger and malnutrition. They may collaborate with leadership throughout the organization, including the Global Service Team (GST).

Learn

Become the topic expert for your district/multiple district by learning about hunger and malnutrition.

  • Learn about Goal 2 of the Sustainable Development Goals, which challenges the world to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainability by 2030.
  • Read about the Zero Hunger Challenge and the different facets of hunger.
  • Explore MyLION, MyLCI, LCI/LCIF’s social media sites, and the annual Leo Video Contest to learn more about how Lions and Leos are addressing hunger in their communities.

Discover

Bring your knowledge to the local level by exploring how hunger and malnutrition are directly impacting your district/multiple district.

  • Conduct a Community Needs Assessment with a special focus on hunger.
  • Contact your local department of public health, or similar organization, to learn about the needs in your area and which populations are at greatest risk of hunger and malnutrition.
  • Identify organizations, including Lions and Leos Clubs in your district/multiple district, which are already mobilized around hunger and assess where there are gaps in the services provided.

Plan

Based upon what you have learned and discovered, submit a plan of action including recommended service goals for hunger to the district governor/council chairperson for approval. In this process, you may wish to:

  • Meet with organizations already working on hunger to discuss how you might support, expand upon, or compliment their ongoing work.
  • Consider incorporating Twinning as a way to increase your local and global impact.
  • Discuss your service plan with the GST Coordinator and other leaders, including other programmatic chairpersons, for their feedback. It is possible they are already implementing a project that would benefit from inclusion of a hunger-related service element.

Act

Inspiring Lion and Leo clubs in your district/multiple district to serve and report their service to MyLCI will be critical to the success of your plan.

  • Guide clubs in your district/multiple district through the “Learn, Discover, Act” journey as it pertains to hunger.
    • Club Education & Awareness Activities (Coming soon!)
    • Hunger Project Idea List (Coming soon!)
  • Encourage service to align with the Worldwide Week of Service to Fight Hunger.
  • Build awareness of the need, the goals and the service plan by offering a hunger-focused seminar and hands-on service activity during district/multiple district convention.
  • Encourage clubs/districts to utilize Hunger Project Blueprints (Coming soon!) to implement projects that will increase their level of community engagement.
  • Promote funding opportunities offered through LCI and LCIF that might support club/district hunger projects.
  • Formalize partnerships with other organizations to enhance local impact.
  • Organize a district/multiple district donation to LCIF for hunger to increase global impact.  
  • Establish and maintain open communication with the district governor, council chairperson and Global Service Team (GST) leaders.

Celebrate

  • Encourage clubs to thoroughly report their hunger projects using MyLCI.
  • Keep the district governor/council chairperson and GST Coordinator informed. Discuss and evaluate progress of the action plan and goals.
  • Share news about hunger projects with the Public Relations Chairperson.
  • Celebrate progress and success by recognizing all participating clubs.
