Hands For Hunger
Hands For Hunger is a humanitarian organization committed to the elimination of hunger and the reduction of food waste through the creation of meaningful and engaging partnerships formed amongst all sectors of the Bahamian community. We strive to inspire a shared sense of social and environmental responsibility amongst citizens, who, individually and collectively, come to realize the power of their own contributions. We do this by food rescue and distribution, education and other innovative solutions.
Our vision is a transformed Bahamas where everyone has access to three nutritious and fortifying meals each day. No one goes hungry. The quality of our environment is enhanced.
Our donors include: distributors, restaurants, hotels, and farms. Hands For Hunger transports this food within hours to those who need it most- community centres, shelters, churches, and soup kitchens throughout New Providence.
Our Recipient Outreach Agencies provide food to hungry children, seniors on fixed income, women seeking refuge from domestic abuse, the homeless, the disabled, psychiatric patients, and many who cannot provide for themselves.
Unlike our food storage program, food rescue focuses mainly on perishable products: prepared foods, fruits, vegetables, bread, milk, meats, and frozen foods. We provide our food donors with disposable aluminum pans, plastic tupperware and tubs, food-safe bags, and food labels to ensure best practices in food handling.
