Feed Our Future-CITACITA’s Taste of Cayman Supporters Enable Meals for Needy Children

April 28, 2014 George Town, Grand Cayman

Festival-goers who enjoyed the 2014 Taste of Cayman event took advantage of the opportunity to pay it forward and ensure a healthy school meal to a child in need through their donation of unused food tickets to Feed Our Future.   In a effort to add a community minded component to the nations leading food festival the Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA), organisers of the Taste of Cayman Food & Wine Festival, encouraged attendees to return unused tickets with the value of such ticket being donated to Feed Our Future. Further enhancing this drive, Seven Fathoms Rum held an exciting mixology competition amongst Cayman’s leading mixologists with full proceeds of their special cocktail concontions sales also going towards Feed Our Future’s school meal progamme. In combination these initiatives raised sufficient funds to ensure hundreds of healthy school meals for children supported through the foundations work.

“The connection between the Taste of Cayman Food & Wine Festival, one of the Island’s leading culinary events widely supported by Cayman’s vibrant restaurant industry and our foundation’s commitment to providing children in need access to healthy meals is a natural one. We have been very encouraged by the Cayman Islands Tourism Association and the community’s support of our efforts and the hungry children in our community stated Wanda Ebanks, Director of Feed Our Future.”

Since inception, Feed our Future has worked diligently with schools to identify those children that have limited access to food and who suffer silently. With its simple objective to provide healthy school meals to children in need, Feed our Future encourages more associations to take a stand against childhood hunger in the Cayman Islands through a partnership with their cause.

“Feed Our Future is a natural alignment with CITA’s Taste of Cayman Food & Wine Festival as CITA is continuously working to better our future in the Cayman Islands. This event represents a vibrant and exciting sector of tourism with our restaurants and it is a pleasure to be able to provide meals to children who would not have had one without the support of Feed Our Future” said Jane Van der Bol, Executive Director of CITA.

Feed Our Future, a registered not for profit, now in its third year of operation continues to evaluate and seek ways to develop its programmes.   For more information on Feed Our Future visit www.feedourfuturecayman.org
