March at The Mews: Dine out to help feed Barbadians in need
At The Mews, we’re passionate about sourcing the best, Bajan produce, supporting local farmers and suppliers. Now, thanks to Charity Chicks Barbados and their Food4Change campaign, we’re helping to support local communities in need.
Our diners can be part of the change too; March is Food4Change: Restaurant Month – encouraging everyone to dine out and donate.
What Food4Change is all about
Charity Chicks is a group of dedicated women and men who get behind worthy causes, based on the real needs of Barbadians. They also encourage Bajans to volunteer and contribute in any way they can.
In 2015 The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO, 2015) stated that, “Barbados is a food-deficit island state with a high food import bill.
Barbados faces the challenge of ensuring its population has adequate access to stable food supplies – a challenge that has been aggravated by a steady rise in food prices in recent years.”
So Charity Chicks stepped up to the plate with Food4Change: addressing local hunger by supplying nutritious foods to Barbadian communities in need, including:
- disadvantaged families and children
- seniors living on a fixed income
- the ill, the disabled and other vulnerable people in our communities
How you can help
Ain’ no big ‘ting – all you need to do is come out and enjoy a meal with us and a voluntary $2.00 BBD donation will be added to your bill.
