HUNGER: In Canada 36.4% of those turning to food banks are children. And in 2012, 49 million Americans lived in food insecure households: 33.1 million adults and 15.9 million children.
 
Many of our District Rotary clubs have special campaigns throughout the year in support of local food banks and pantries.
 
You can help on Saturday January 24, 2015 when clubs throughout Rotary District 7040 join together with their communities in a Rotary Day of Service to support our local food banks.

WEEK 24 WHAT IS A ROTARY FOUNDATION GLOBAL GRANT SCHOLARSHIP?
 
Established in 1947, the original Ambassadorial Scholarship program, valued in excess of $20,000 was designed to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries. With the launch of the Rotary Grants model, scholarships are now used to fund study by graduate students whose career goals support an area of focus. The funding is the same as a Humanitarian global grant with a minimum scholarship amount of US$30,000. Upon returning home, Rotary Scholars share with Rotarians and others their experiences that led to a greater understanding of their host country, and what career they will go into in order to meet the six areas of focus and spread good will and understanding.
