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.

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.
