Yesterday the C.C.V.C held a meeting with all three soup kitchens namely Il Pelicano, The Volunteers of Caye Caulker Soup Kitchen and Hand of Love. In the meeting it was clearly stated that all three kitchens will continue to serve meals as long as they possible can and one master list will be created to ensure that if a person is getting one meal from a kitchen that person will not be allowed to get at another kitchen. The purpose of this list is to ensure that help is being extended to everyone in need and that distribution is done in the most fair manner. If you would like to sign up for a meal, please contact the Facebook page of Hands of Love or The Volunteers of Caye Caulker Facebook page. The Caye Caulker Village Council express gratitude to all soup kitchens for providing meals to many families.

A donation of breads was also received from Mr. Andre Perez and it was distributed to the residents. Mr. Perez on behalf of the Caye Caulker community we sincerely thank you for your contribution to our community.

The Caye Caulker Village Council was also visited by Lieutenant Commander Alma Pinelo,

Captain Elton Bennett Commandant Belize Coast Guard and Petty Officer class 3 Zebediah Moore. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the time frame of the presence of the Coast Guard during the state of emergency on the island and to ensure that there is an established line of communication with the C.C.V.C. We appreciate Lt. Commander Pinelo, Captain Benett and Officer Moore stopping in for a courtesy visit. The Caye Caulker Village Council anticipates working with the Belize Coast Guard.

The Hands of Love, Il Pelicano, the Caye Caulker Soup Kitchen and the C.C.V.C. representatives held a 4 hour meeting to cross check list from all parties. If you are on the Caye Caulker Soup Kitchen list, you will not be allowed to get groceries from the Arms of Love nor the C.C.V.C. list. If you are getting groceries from the pantry program from the Government of Belize, you will be automatically disqualified for any assistance from any of the local assistance program. This was a collective decision in an attempt to try and provide assistance for the most vulnerable for as long as possible. Sadly some people have been abusing the local systems and some controls are needed to ensure all these entities can sustain the programmes for as long as necessary. We ask for your kind understanding in this matter.

With this said, Saturday the Chinese Community in collaboration with the C.C.V.C will hand out groceries at the basketball court at 5:00p.m. from a list to avoid dublications.

You can only receive assistance from ONE program on Caye Caulker...


In light of sensitizing the public on the matter of covid 19 2020 local food / pantry programs on our island, all local bodies had combined all the data gather from those who recognize the hardship we all are facing at this time.

CCVC / Soup Kitchen / Helping hands (Split) would like to inform the community that the operation of our programs works to try and render SOME sort of assistance to as many families as possible and for us to see that all the food / pantry reaches as much people we put together all the names in one data base so items can be distributed in the best / equal manner possible.

Yes we know that the situation isnít an easy one, but for our program to move forward we notify you that if you had started and agreed to stay on either one of the three local programs then that is the avenue you will be aided from. Also, if you had being on the GOB pantry / finance aid then you wonít be valid to receive from any of the three local programs. We hope you do understand that this is a collective agreement by all parties involved on how we wish to proceed with the help we can offer,as you know each body,have and continue to either bare the expenses from their own funds and who have also seeking other local and international assistance for these programs to be successful.

We hope you can understand. Thank you CCVC
