In an effort to help rebuild San Pedro Town as we recover from the Covid-19 economic crisis, Councillor Dianeli Danni Aranda with the portfolio of Women, Youths & Children Affairs and the San Pedro Town Council are proud to launch the San Pedro Town Council Foodbank Program.

This new program to the island will allow qualified families to purchase a Food Basket for the sum of BZ$25.00. The retail value of the bags average BZ$40.00. 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 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, elderly and families where the breadwinners remain unemployed that reside in San Pedro Town ONLY. The Council has committed to initially assist 200 families. Since, the launch of the program on Monday over 50 families have already been assisted.

If you wish to donate to this initiative email: [email protected] or call Councillor Dianeli Aranda: +501 635-3411.

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.
