Cayman Food Bank Provides COVID-19 Response

The Cayman Food Bank is a nonprofit organization with a clear mission that aims to “mitigate island-wide hunger, by providing access to healthy food.” While we cater to N.A.U. families, domestic abuse survivors and seniors, our key area of focus is to eliminate childhood hunger.

In light of this global pandemic, the Cayman Food Bank has formed a Covid-19 Response Team to combat the widespread hunger that is currently plaguing our society. On Saturday 28 March 2020, the Covid-19 Response Team partnered with the First Assembly of God church on Old Crewe Road to provide over 120 bags of groceries to families and individuals. Families came to the First Assembly of God church from many areas of the island, including Windsor Park and Prospect. The Cayman Food Bank’s Covid-19 Response Team employed proper protocols, including physical distancing and the use of hand sanitizers during the grocery packing and delivery processes.

The Cayman Food Bank wishes to publicly thank its volunteers for their involvement and continues to actively seek donations from organizations as well as individuals to provide to the vulnerable children, adults and seniors. Unfortunately, the number of vulnerable persons has increased due to the pandemic, leaving our pantries empty. As such, donations are now urgently needed.

Donations can be made in person to either of the below locations:

1. Rosedale Warehouse, Unit 11, 51 Sleepy Hollow Drive (across from Progressive Distributors near CUC)

2. First Assembly of God, 195 Old Crewe Road (across from the roundabout by King’s Gym)

Alternatively, donors may contact Phillip Hyre at 926-6111 or phillip@caymanfoodbank.com.

Monetary donations can also be made using the following details:

Bank: Cayman National Bank

Account Name: The Good Samaritan Food Bank

KYD Account Number: 01115055
