Hungry Lion Bike Tour

September 25, 2021

The HLBT was created in 2011 to help raise funds to fight hunger in Southern Vermont.  To date, the event has raised more than $50,000 for the Lion’s annual Holiday Food Basket program, and for local food pantries. 

“Hunger affects nearly one in five Vermonters,” said Lions president Julie Muller.  “People don’t see it because so many hungry people are very private about it.  But hunger and food insecurity are definitely a problem in our community.  Fortunately, we can do something about it! Our Lions Club – and our partners in the Deerfield Valley Rotary Club and Readsboro Lions --  are working hard to ensure that local families and seniors get the nutrition they need, through our Holiday Food Basket program and through donations to local Food Banks.”

We began by serving a warm holiday dinner. Although it was a treat for many, there were no long-term benefits. Today, we provide enough food to literally fill the cupboards of those in need all across the Deerfield Valley, when it is most needed - the weekend before Christmas. The groceries are all delivered in reusable canvas bags and are overflowing with various staples and perishables. In recent years we've joined forces with other nonprofit, all-volunteer service clubs and are able to serve approximately 500 people in the nine surrounding towns.  www.hungrylionbiketour.com
