Feed Cayman 2020
Since mid-March, Cayman’s ARK has been partnering with The Wharf and Grand Old House, who have been producing and donating hot meals daily which are then delivered daily by a veritable army of volunteers across the island, including other non-profits. ARK have delivered 550+ meals across each district, and 72 during the Easter weekend, as well as a Fosters cards/Gift certificates where possible.
In the next phase of our Covid-19 “Feed Cayman” Initiative, Acts of Random Kindness will scale up this effort. We will create a central “soup kitchen” to serve as a hub for producing up to 500 soups a day, 6 days a week. Over the next few weeks, this will play a vital role in sustaining Cayman’s struggling families, and those who are currently unemployed as a result of the Pandemic.
Recipients will receive one delivery weekly: Fresh hot meals for the day from The Wharf for all the family, delicious soups from the Soup Kitchen, and frozen meals provided by the Community “At Home” (for the rest of the week); plus a Foster’s card to enable them to purchase fresh food, other supplies and necessities.
ARK is leveraging significant donations from the local community and partnering with other non-profit organizations to make this a reality.
Who are the recipients?
Prior to Covid-19, ARK ran the “Feed Cayman” program distributing food cards (for the island’s major supermarkets) weekly to needy families, single moms, and other vulnerable people who have “fallen through the cracks”. They live in crowded dwellings without kitchens, running water and bathrooms, and sometimes no electricity. ARK applies stringent “due diligence” criteria while ensuring that Cayman’s most needy families have food at home.
In March 2020, ARK’s list began to significantly increase, as more and more people lost their jobs in the service industry and have reached out for support. The Covid-19 crisis affects us all, but its negative economic consequences fall disproportionately on these people.
