Since the introduction of COVID-19 to the Cayman Islands, which brought with it severe financial hardship, there has been a growing list of persons in our communities who are in need. Through this, we have seen several partnerships and alliances formed with organizations across the islands to meet the growing needs of the public.
The Community Services Department, of the Adventist Church in the Cayman Islands through a partnership with Tillies Restaurant located on West Bay Road, Seven Mile Beach since May 02, has delivered over 5000 meals to members of the community. The process includes serving at least 107 hot meals four (4) days per week in areas such as George Town through to the Bodden Town District.
Angela Hall, Assistant Community Services Director, had this to say about the partnership. “We are happy for the relationship that has been formed with the Tillies Restaurant but even happier for the individuals we were able to assist through this partnership”.
As the country moves into Level 2 (minimal suppression) which has seen many restrictions lifted and the Islands slowly moving to a new normal the food distribution team has decided to reduce delivering meals to once per week. Additionally, they will be giving perishable and non-perishable food items provided by Tillies, to needy families as they recover from the pandemic.
