Hands For Hunger is a humanitarian organization committed to the elimination of unnecessary hunger and the reduction of food waste through the creation of meaningful and engaging partnerships formed amongst all sectors of the Bahamian community. We strive to inspire a shared sense of social and environmental responsibility amongst citizens, who, individually and collectively, come to realize the power of their own contributions. We do this by food rescue and distribution, education and other innovative solutions aimed at achieving national food security.
Our vision is a transformed Bahamas where everyone has access to three nutritious and fortifying meals each day. No one goes hungry. The quality of our environment is enhanced.
Each day our team sets out to pick up fresh, high quality food that would otherwise go to waste. Our donors include: grocery stores, distributors, restaurants, and hotels. Hands For Hunger transports this food within hours to those who need it most - community centers, shelters, churches and soup kitchens throughout the island. These agencies provide food to hungry children, seniors on fixed income, women seeking refuge from domestic abuse, the homeless, the disabled, psychiatric patients and many more who cannot provide for themselves.
Unlike a food bank, we focus mainly on perishable products: prepared foods, fruits, vegetables, milk, frozen foods and meat.
Hands For Hunger is a registered, not-for-profit charity (# 57211 C) that relies on donations from community groups, foundations, corporations and people like you. We are led by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by hundreds of dedicated volunteers.
