The San Pedro Hot Lunch Program was developed by Maresha Reid, owner of Pirate's Treasure and Pirate's Secret Beach. With the closure of the island, due to the COVID pandemic, Maresha instinctively saw the need to feed the people on Ambergris Caye. She started off feeding 80 people on March 24th, 2020. Currently, she feeds more than 350 people - three times per week. But there are so many more that need help!
100% of the profits from this book will go to the San Pedro Hot Lunch Program, to help ensure no one on Ambergris Caye goes to bed hungry.

The cookbook is featured in Forbes Magazine...

Everything Essential To Eat In Belize That Can Be Made At Home

Fortunately, enjoying what Belize has to offer can be done while helping the developing country cope with this sudden economic hardship. Island resident Kimberly Wylie jumped into action by releasing the Ambergris Caye COVID Relief Cookbook, which delivers 100% of the profits earned from selling the book to the San Pedro Hot Lunch Program, started by Maresha Reid of Pirate’s Treasure Restaurant and Pirate’s Not-So-Secret Beach Bar. Through this program, Reid is able to feed almost 400 island residents 3 times a week. “People who had very little to begin with now had nothing,” Wylie explains. “Regretfully, the COVID relief funds the government had in its coffers were only enough to provide minimally for a fraction of the population. As this shutdown continues to drag on into the months, more and more people need help.”

The cook book includes 90+ recipes crafted by local restaurateurs, chefs, Ambergris Caye residents, and visitors, including 45 Belizean-specific dishes, and 52 more non-Belizean dishes that can still be found at restaurants throughout Ambergris Caye. Plus, the cookbook includes over 100 amazing photos alongside recipes to showcase the beauty of Belize, offering a veritable meal for the eyes.

Below are a selection of Belize’s most essential dishes to sample when visiting, recipes for many of which can be found in the cookbook. Note that Marie Sharp’s Hot Sauce complements just about every Belizean flavor, so be sure to stock up. And when it’s safe to return to Belize, head straight to Belize Food Tours for a comprehensive and fun introduction to Belize’s best eats on Ambergris Caye.
