Cayman Masonic Children’s Foundation supports Feed Our Future

Bro Donnie Forbes presents a cheque for KYD $15,000 representing the CMCF’s annual donation to the Non-Profit Organisation.

Feed our Future was founded in2011 and is a registered Non-profit Organisation (“NPO”) in the Cayman Islands. It is a 100% volunteer run organisation and has a very simple mission, which is to provide children in need regular and dependable access to healthy meals so that they can lead healthy and productive lives. The Feed our Future Board of Directors remain focused on confronting the national issue of hunger and providing a tangible safety net and solution that empowers many children in theCayman Islands. Feed our Future has developed different programmes to ensure every donation dollar is maximized. Examples being, its programme to fund nutritionally balanced school meals to children in need (in excess of 200daily) at all Government schools.

Additionally, the summer break from school represents a long stretch of missed meals for many of these children. Over the eight to nine weeks of summer, the “Recipe for Summer” programme provides a weekly basket of fresh foods for up to 100 children and bridges the gap between each school year. Feed our Future has also developed life skills workshops to benefit the parents and children. These include ‘Cooking Matters’ and ‘Shopping Matters’.

Most recently the Educational Enrichment programme has been introduced, which focuses on at-risk students at the primary school level. This expands the mission of Feed our Future by advocating for underprivileged children to be educated through access to specialised services such as literacy, numeracy, music and art, exposing them to a broad range of learning environments.
