December 8th – District-wide Food Packing Event to feed the hungry

Thanks to the help of Operation Inasmuch, on December 8th the District 12N Lions held a successful District-wide food packing event involving 93 Lions from 39 clubs along with a few other volunteers from Operation Inasmuch, Smoky Stadium restaurant and some Combat Vets.  During the four-hour event, 38,000 meals of fortified mac and cheese and beans and rice were packed and then distributed to help feed the hungry throughout various communities within District 12N.  Please take a moment to look at some of the hardworking Lions packing the food.  A big THANK YOU to all!  More information and photos can be found in the District 12N January News & Views Newsletter Pgs 14-16 – Click here for January News & Views.


Many of the District 12N clubs also individually prepared Food baskets for local families in need – Thank you Lions for serving your communities!
