AML Foods demonstrated its commitment to sparking change in the community and donated $6,000 to families in need in New Providence, Grand Bahama, and Exuma.
Today, AML Foods Limited launched its 7th annual “Feed 5000” Holiday Feeding Program with an initial injection of $5,000. The company is once again seeking to provide holiday meals to thousands of Bahamian families in need for Christmas.
From November 14th to December 19th, 2022, they are inviting their team members, corporate Bahamas, and customers to support the program by purchasing or donating towards the purchase of Christmas Dinner Packages valued at $50 at any Fresh Market, Solomon’s, or Cost Right location in New Providence or Grand Bahama, and Exuma Markets in Georgetown, Exuma. This year given inflation, they have increased the amount of each food package by ten dollars.
The company has partnered with the Bahamas Feeding Network and The Salvation Army, The Grand Bahama branch of the Red Cross, and the One Exuma Foundation, four of the leading /feeding programs in the country, to facilitate the distribution of all proceeds raised “AML Foods remains steadfast in our commitment to helping those in need, particularly in the area of hunger relief,” says Renea Bastian, VP of Marketing & Communications. We understand what this program has come to represent for many families and the positive impact it has in the community.
Gavin Watchorn, CEO & President, noted, “Since starting the program in 2016, AML, through our donations as well as support from our customers and corporate Bahamas, have successfully raised and distributed more than half a million dollars in food vouchers. This equates to more than 12,500 Christmas Meals, feeding more than 50,000 Bahamians.
Organizations, civic groups, or private citizens wanting to support the Feed 5000 program and help to make the holidays a little brighter for Bahamian families in need, can purchase packages, or donate toward a package, at the registers in any Fresh Market, Solomon’s, or Cost Right location in New Providence or Grand Bahama, and Exuma Markets in Georgetown, Exuma. AML also announced that it will soon make public a new initiative aimed at helping to address the issue of food insecurity.
