Our Team for COVID-19
We are the COVID-19 FORaMEAL Leadership Team
Dr. Douglas Hawley OAM
Dr. Doug Hawley OAM founded the project in 2016 with the aim of providing disaster relief for those most in need. Having seen the first hand devastation caused by natural disasters, Doug applied his knowledge as a biochemist to create an emergency meal pack that is both nutritious and versatile. After numerous iterations and ongoing testing, the FORaMEAL pack was born – a balanced and nutritious meal packed with energy and proteins together with a formulated sachet of important vitamins and minerals. To this day, Doug continues to personally oversee the manufacturing and quality control of all the FORaMEAL meal packs.

Ms. Valerie Cunniffe
Val is FORaMEAL’s Project Leader and Champion. Her leadership has been instrumental in the project’s success. Val’s passion and resolve in assisting those in need is both an inspiration to her team as well as those involved in the FORaMEAL project.

Mr. Xin Xiao
Kevin plays a crucial role in coordinating and managing the distribution partners and volunteers who are working tirelessly to get the FORaMEAL packs to vulnerable families and individuals.

— We focus on nutrition
As a biochemist, Dr. Doug Hawley designed and formulated the FORaMEAL packs to include a balance and nutritious blend of carbohydrates, important fats and proteins together with a sachet of essential vitamins and minerals
— We fund every meal
97% of every dollar we raise for the FORaMEAL project goes into the producing, packaging and delivering the meal itself. Everyone on the FORaMEAL project volunteer their time, experience and expertise to this cause.
2.5% + GST is paid to Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd. (RAWCS) for administering the donations.
— We locally source every meal
We use the money we raise and the in-kind donations we receive to purchase the three core ingredients – oats, lentils and rice, together with essential vitamins and minerals as required. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Major Sponsors in donating core ingredients in our FORaMEAL packs.
— We pack every meal
Each year, volunteers from across the Rotary network produce, seal and box approximately 150,000 meals for distribution.
— We donate every meal
In the past, the meals packed have been sent
abroad to vulnerable communities in S.E.Asia. This year our focus is also helping vulnerable families during the VOVID-19 crisis.
— We build community & trust
In addition to the FORaMEAL packs, the project offers us the opportunity to strengthen community trust, mutual understanding and the Aussie Spirit of Mateship. All our sponsors, volunteers and the FORaMEAL team feel just as blessed as those who receive the FORaMEAL packs.
