NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Rising grocery store prices are placing a further burden on local non-profit organizations, including Great Commission Ministries (GCM) which feeds hundreds of people in need each week.

Great Commission Ministries is reporting a 20% increase in expenses due to the escalating rise in grocery store prices, according to Senior Pastor Bishop Walter Hanchell.

He said it has affected them as they seek to stock the food bank.
Last week, local businesses like SuperValue and Lowes Wholesale warned of a rise in prices.
Hanchell said the spike in food prices has made their work more difficult.

He called for more funds to be allocated to assist those in need.

Addressing reporters as GCM accepted a donation from the senate, BAMSI President Erecia Hepburn also weighed in.

She said it’s important for Bahamians to know where to shop, to get the best prices.
