The Ministry of Social Services leaves a special holiday treat for The Bahamas Feeding Network (BFN), donating $5,000 towards the “Feed 5,000 Families” Campaign. 

Minister Frankie Campbell said he is  grateful for the opportunity to help add quality to the lives of the people of The Bahamas, whom he proudly serves.

He said, “I’m satisfied that no amount of government programs will catch everybody. So, we rely on our partners to give us that extra boost as we attempt to put in place safety nets for various aspects of vulnerable persons within our community.” 

The Bahamas Feeding Network is a non-profit group of 13 separate organizations formed in December 2013 to tackle the hunger rate in the country. 

 BFN aims to perform as a hub for collecting and distributing food throughout the archipelago.

 Minister Campbell shared why  his Ministry  chose to team up with the organization.

He said, “I had the privilege, a few months ago, to go on a Sunday afternoon to the building on Fox Hill Road,  just next to the police station. I was privileged to be on the line taking up food and making up parcels.”

He added, “I think 3,000 persons or there about were served and I saw first-hand the impact that the feeding network  had.”

Mr. Campbell said the ministry has pumped about 12 million dollars into food assistance, and the $5,000 cheque came from the Urban Renewal Commission. 

This is the “Feed 5,000 Families” third annual campaign, and this initiative is in collaboration with AML Foods Limited, The Bahamas Feeding Network, The Bahamas Red Cross, and The Salvation Army.
