NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Each day, the team at Hands for Hunger collects fresh food that would otherwise go to waste and transports it to community centers, shelters, and churches that cater to people in need. Hands for Hunger’s hard work was highlighted during REV’s “Connecting People Who Care” campaign.

Jillian Gray takes a look.



Formed in 2008, Hands for Hunger has fed hundreds of families in need.

Its food pantry off Carmichael Road offers a unique spin on receiving food assistance. People can come and choose what they want, eliminating waste and bringing a certain level of dignity to the process, according to pantry coordinator Stacy Ann Walkine. 

Meat, eggs, fruits, and vegetables are all sourced either from local farmers or through corporate sponsors. It’s a big task, and Walkine says it’s only through can or cash donations that they’re able to continue their work

Hands for Hunger is one of three companies vying for Cable Bahamas connecting people who care campaign.

Walkine described Thompson as a bundle of joy with a heart for people.
