Our Strategy

Grants are available to Lions districts in amounts of US$10,000 to US$150,000. Hunger Grants support infrastructure and equipment acquisition of Lions’ projects focused on alleviating hunger. Funds can be used for a project’s capital needs and select project operational expenses during the start-up period.


Typical project expenses may include:

  • Construction or expansion of food banks, feeding centers, and food storage facilities.
  • Construction or expansion of kitchen or dining facilities as part of a school based feeding program.
  • Purchase of refrigerators and freezers to store perishable food items.
  • Kitchen equipment such as stoves and ovens.
  • Furniture such as chairs and tables for dining rooms and feeding centers.
  • Vehicles to transport, collect, and deliver food.
