We partner with all of the members of the community within each Caribbean territory to unite and support the overall fight against hunger.
The 30 targeted territories are Aruba, Antigua, Anguilla, Bonaire, Barbados, Bahamas, Bermuda, Barbuda, Curacao, Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, Montserrat, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, St. Martin, St. Maarten, St. John, St. Barts, Turks & Caicos, and Trinidad & Tobago.
The importance of Food Banks
Food banks are becoming increasingly important as the Caribbean region is faced with the food security crisis due to rising costs. Households are struggling to make ends meet and as food prices rise many are struggling to feed themselves and their families.
Food banks are an important way to make sure people are getting the food they need. These not-for-profit, charitable organizations established throughout the Caribbean region will give out food to those who need it the most. With more and more people turning towards food banks due to the cost-of-living crisis, the need for them is increasing. Not only does the cost-of-living crisis make food banks important organizations for feeding our communities, but they are also an excellent way of helping to combat food waste through food repositioning. We want 30 IN 30 = 30 food banks established in 30 territories.
Advocacy is essential, and contacting representatives is an easy and effective means of citizen involvement. Supporting hunger initiatives and awareness over social media is another simple option. On a local level, communities can provide meals for the hungry among them.
In the last 26 years, the number of hungry people worldwide has fallen by 216 million. With enough public determination, this amount will continue to drop until no one in the world goes to bed hungry.
