Not one to shy away from helping each other, islanders and businesses (both on and off-island) have come together to find a way to help the less fortunate – either via groceries or feeding programs. One such program that is feeding hundreds is manned by Maresha Reid. With the assistance of a host of donors and volunteers, they are delivering hot meals in different subdivisions three times per week.
Reid is a chef and proprietor of Pirate’s Treasure Restaurant and Pirate’s Not-So-Secret Beach Bar and she has been happily feeding those most in need in San Pedro Town for the past weeks. The beneficiaries of this program enjoy fresh, hot homemade meals, prepared with the help of volunteers. The prepared meals are then delivered to families, who have been carefully identified and are contacted via telephone when the hot meals will be distributed. Deliveries are done on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in vulnerable areas like San Mateo, San Pedrito and San Juan subdivisions. All beneficiaries have lost their jobs because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and have no way to prepare meals.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
