NASSAU, BAHAMAS – As grocery store prices continue to rise, a local non-profit is putting a smile on the face of Eleutherans.

Berthony McDermott tells us more.



With the goal to expand to Family Islands, Hands for Hunger provided food packages to 1,000 families in Eleuthera with a price tag of more than $50,000, according to Hands For Hunger Executive Director Keisha Ellis.

The initiative comes as the price of food items continue to escalate given inflation in global markets.

If the items were purchased locally, district local government chairman Kennard Mackey says each box would have cost families just over $115.

The box included items like fruits, fresh bread, eggs, rice, oats, cereal, sugar, flour and a variety of canned goods and more.

Hands For Hunger took its mobile community market to provide food to individuals as far north as Current Island and Spanish Wells to Deep Creek in the south.

Mackey said the initiative brought much joy to locals.

According to Ellis, this isn’t the last for Eleuthera. She said the goal is to have a constant presence there.
