Members of the Kempsville Lions Club gathered on March 3, 2013 at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, located in Virginia Beach, to partake in a Stop Hunger Now event. SHN is a world-wide distributor of meals to those in need. Saturday's meals were going to areas in Ethiopia, Vietnam, Yugoslavia and China.
The meals are highly nutritious, dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, flavoring and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. Each package provides a reasonable serving for six and costs approximately 25 cents to make. The meals are easy to transport, store and distribute to those in greatest need. The meal packaging program predominantly provides meals to support school feeding programs in schools and orphanages around the world. This is a pivotal step because children in impoverished areas are often sent to school if they will be fed. The education they receive is the turning point at which many negative factors such as infant mortality, disease and gender equality are impacted and communities can begin to heal themselves..
More than 1 billion people do not have enough to eat. In developing countries, 10.9 million children under age five die each year. In fact, a child dies every six seconds from a hunger-related cause.
The meals are packaged by volunteers – like us. Through a fun and engaging assembly line process, a team of 40 volunteers can package 10,000 meals in just two hours.
This brings the Kempsville Lions Club total up to over 90,000 meals packaged.
3rd Annual Frosty 5K Run
Saturday - January 12, 2013
Virginia Beach, VA
The Kempsville Lions Club held its 3rd Annual Frosty 5K Run on January 12, 2013 at our NEW venue - The SportsPlex in Virginia Beach. The weather had been cold, but for this one day the weather was unseasonably warm with mist lingering in the air.
We opened the Frosty 5K at our new venue - the SportsPlex in Virginia Beach. We were psyched about the new location. The other runs we held were at Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach, and were freezing with a strong wind. When runner's were polled after the race, they loved the new location and the race.
Below are some photos from the run:
