Councillor Dianeli "Danni" Aranda with the portfolio of Women, Youth & Children Affairs along with Mayor Wally Nunez and the San Pedro Town Council launched the San Pedro Town Council Foodbank Program in 2021.
This program allows qualified families to purchase a Food Basket for the sum of BZ$25.00. The retail value of the bags average BZ$40. However, with donations we are able to add additional items each time such as chicken and other canned goods so the bags are expected to vary overtime.
The purpose of charging $25 is to make the program sustainable in that its operational cost of basic goods will be met and the monies can be re-invested to further purchase more goods.
The Assistance Program is based on financial need. The groups that will initially benefit are single parents, the elderly and families where the breadwinners remain unemployed that reside in San Pedro Town ONLY.
Since, the launch of the program over 200 families have already been assisted. The program will begin distribution this week for 2022.
