San Pedro Hot Meals Feeding Program needs your help
The ongoing pandemic led to a wave of unity from businesses and donors, which gave birth to a variety of programs, including a food program manned by island chef Maresha Reid. After delivering thousands of warm meals three times per week to those most vulnerable, Reid continues with the program, but needs more donations to keep it going. The program has adopted a different approach and is now feeding daily lunch to several people. With the funds acquired via a GoFundMe account (https://bit.ly/3mt9nYv
) around 70 persons are being provided with lunch each day.
According to Reid, any amount of donations helps to continue feeding those who struggle to help themselves, at least until the country opens back to tourism. She indicated that for $84 US or $168 BZ, a donor could guarantee someone meals every day for two weeks. Donors can even make donations and indicate if they want the daily lunch to go to a specific person known to them. Currently, funding/assistance has been secured for 70 persons, but to go into another round of feeding, the program requires more finances. At press time, only sponsorship for 20 individuals is needed to cover the 70 current beneficiaries.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
