Working Together to End Hunger in the Caribbean
Feeding Caribbean is a hunger-relief organization implementing and managing a sustainable food distribution system in the Caribbean region. We are working to connect people with food and to eradicate hunger in 30 Caribbean territories. We partner with all of the members of the community within each Caribbean territory to unite and support the overall fight against hunger.
A View of 2022
In 2022, we will continue raising funds to ship donated food items to the US Virgin Islands and extend this effort to the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands and St. Martin/St. Maarten. With the support of the Middle Tennessee business community, we will launch Feeding Caribbean Nashville in January; a program allowing us to feed the underserved in the Promise Zones while supporting small, minority-owned Caribbean restaurants. In May, we will host our first NCAA Division 1 school sponsored Student-Athlete offshore community service program in the US Virgin Islands. In November, we will host the 2nd Annual HOOPS AGAINST HUNGER event in the US Virgin Islands in conjunction with the Paradise Jam basketball tournament. The event will include nine corporate sponsored feeding events and teams participating in the tournament serving as volunteers. The launch of our corporate partnership program will provide the support needed to strengthen our infrastructure which will increase our outreach. Finally, with the support of our main corporate partner, we look forward to opening our headquarter office in the US Virgin Islands.
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.
