AML Foods Limited through their brands, Solomon’s, Cost Right, Fresh Market and Domino’s Pizza presented representatives from the National Food Distribution Task Force in New Providence and Grand Bahama with $43,000 in food vouchers to help Bahamians on the national feeding program.

Food Vouchers were received on behalf of the taskforce by Lend A Hand Bahamas in New Providence and the Feed Grand Bahama Food Assistance Program in Freeport, Grand Bahama. Through their annual Feed 5000 program AML Foods has donated almost half a million dollars since launching in 2016. “We are proud to once again be able to assist those in need in our community.

COVID has affected us all, some more than others, and we want the Bahamian people to know that we will continue to do our best to help them in any way that we can,” said Renea Bastian, VP of Marketing & Communications at AML Foods Limited.

Raquel Beneby-Hart, Administrator at the Feed Grand Bahama Food Assistance Program said her team was grateful for the contribution, noting the positive impact it would have on the Grand Bahama community in the coming months.

“We are delighted that AML Foods continues to strengthen this relationship,” she said. “The Feed Grand Bahama Food Assistance Program has distributed over 61,000 vouchers to the vulnerable in our community and 1500 turkeys during the Christmas to churches throughout the island.”

Mrs Beneby-Hart added, “Because of this generous contribution by AML, the Program will be able to touch many more persons and homes in need”.

AML donated $30,000 of the overall proceeds and $13,000 was donated by customers in both Nassau and Freeport. “We want to send a heartfelt thank you to all who donated to the program”, Bastian added, “We are humbled and grateful for the support we always receive from our customers and partners.”
