Global food shortages are looming as the single greatest threat to mankind! But there is a simple solution food plants that grow and thrive naturally where they are best adapted.

Food Plant Solutions is a visionary project  of Rotary Tasmania, District 9830, based on the lifetime work of agricultural scientist, Bruce French, from Tasmania. He has compiled the world’s most comprehensive food plant database.


Food in the Solomons

Food Plant Solutions prime objective is to provide resources, information and technical support to food aid providers so they can help people in need learn about and grow the best local plants to match their nutritional needs.  This project can truly help the hungry feed themselves.

 Rotary Response to Disasters

Rotary International in Australia sees it’s major role in disasters as a “second line ” approach. Rotary will normally leave first response to the emergency authorities.

Our role is seen to be in the recovery process. With Rotary Clubs spread throughout most areas that experience disasters we are well equipped to support recovery initiatives after the immediate disaster has passed.


However there are two Rotary endorsed organisations that do support immediate emergency relief world wide


An Australian Rotary club project delivering humanitarian aid to people around the world affected by disasters (either natural or manmade) on behalf of Australians.
