Despite buckets of rain on Saturday evening, supporters of Feed Our Future enjoyed an island paradise feast and dug their toes into the sand for late-night dancing at Camana Bay beach to raise money for the local charity.
The annual Island Roast benefit raises funds for Feed Our Future, which was set up to provide a direct way to minimize child hunger, improve health and assist educational development through funding nutritional school meals. In 2014/15, it supported more than 300 pupils with a balanced school meal. Feed Our Future also offers shopping smart and healthy, low-cost cooking workshops for the families it assists. Its summer food program is in its second year, helping more than 50 families with weekly groceries.
Saturday’s beach roast featured a variety of Caribbean fare, prepared and served by some of the leading restaurants’ finest chefs. This year, Feed Our Future also offered a vegan station and a Cuban-style roasted pig with all the trimmings.
Steel Attitude and Ironshore Muzik Group entertained, as attendees danced and partied all evening long.
