One way Rotarians can become leaders in the fight against hunger and malnutrition is to organize a “Big Idea” Hunger Summit that includes organizations and other groups who may already be involved in hunger relief. Hunger Summits like these help Rotary clubs develop strong connections and collaborate with other like-minded community members and leaders to take on some of the biggest challenges in providing food for people in need.
This concept was developed by Rotary Clubs in Central Indiana (USA) as part of their inaugural “Better Together” conference. Community members from corporations, foundations, volunteer groups, church groups and others joined in the conversations.
Each “Big Idea” was presented and shared with the audience, and the top three ideas received funding from the Rotary District to help launch the project.
