In this project, which is a continuation of the Round 4 project, FFF will provide basic food items using its social supermarket concept to supply 50 low-income families (150 persons) with food on a weekly basis. The families will have the opportunity to shop for groceries and related core products. In this way they will be able to make their own choices on what to take home, while maintaining their pride and dignity.
The grant will be used to cover the costs of basic food supplies for the beneficiaries.
Freegan Food Foundation fights food waste and strives to end hunger on the island of St. Maarten. The Foundation started its work right after hurricane Irma, since food security both then and now is one of St. Maarten’s core challenges.
They collaborate with wholesalers, supermarkets, hotels and restaurants to collect surplus food and redistribute it to those in need. The main goal is to provide adequate and healthy food which meets the basic needs of those who need it most.
