The World’s Greatest Meal (WGM) is a global annual fundraising signature event with the aim of raising funds to eradicate polio throughout the World. The event was   initiated by Rotarian Sussane Rea, a Past President of Rotary Club of Cairns Sunrise Australia who happened to be the guest of honor at the first WGM event organized in Uganda by the Rotary Club of Kampala Nsambya in 2015.
Since its inception 2015, the Rotary Club of Kampala Nsambya raises funds through this event for club service projects while part of the proceeds is sent to The Rotary Foundation towards the polio eradication fund.  In 2017, the WGM was  sponsored by  Bank of Uganda and proceeds helped the club to secure a Maternal and Child Health care global grant project (GG1637099) totaling to USD 46,655.00. The project was implemented at 2 health centers: - Nkokonjeru Health center III where the facility was equipped with water tanks, gutters for rain harvest, solar system and renovation to the maternity ward. Lugasa Health Center III-Kayunga district antenatal section was also expanded, renovated and equipped with solar system, delivery beds and other modern equipment.  Staff quarters were constructed too.
This year’s the World’s Greatest Meal was held on 26th October 2018 at Sheraton hotel –Kampala. Over 200 hundred people (including Rotarians, Rotaractors and sponsors) attended the event which raised USD 7,000.  The guest of honor was PP Michelle Tsui from the Rotary Club of Menlo Park district 5150 USA and the chief fundraiser was the Immediate past district governor Kenneth Wycliffe Mugisha.
