Three island residents have joined forces with the San Pedro Lions Club to kick-start an island Food Bank. Britney O’Daniel, Gualberto “Wally” Nuñez and Darwin Palma are the founders of the first ever San Pedro Food Bank, which will provide weekly groceries to low income families. The Food Bank is located upstairs of the San Pedro Lions Den and efforts are already in place to stock up inventory for the distribution to commence on Tuesday, April 10th.

According to O’Daniel, this initiative is essential to ensure that all island residents receive the basic nourishment of everyday meals. “We came up with the idea about six to nine months ago. What we want to do is to subsidize groceries to low income families so that they can have food daily,” said O’Daniel. A volunteer from the North Texas Food Bank in the USA, O’Daniel is very passionate about the cause. “Together with Nuñez and Palma, we started working on finding a location and taking the first steps towards getting the necessary inventory to sustain the Food Bank. We reached out to the Lions, who were more than happy to provide us with the space to store the items and be our headquarters. Caye Mart also came onboard to help us stock up on groceries. Right now we are stocking and just getting ready to start distribution,” said O’Daniel.

This is a wonderful wonderful project. I hope we all pitch in and help. It is a challenge to have proper eating habits when one is poor, and further difficult to assemble healthy food that has a long shelf life.
Are there any nutritionists out there who could help/advise this fantastic initiative so that they can provide not only calories but significant and balanced nutrition to build strong bones and healthy brains?
