Tourism officials launch food drive

Civil servants are encouraged to donate nonperishable food items to stock the Elmslie Memorial United Church’s pantry. The goods will be distributed to those in need during the holiday season and beyond, the ministry stated in a press release.

Those who donated to the campaign on Friday were invited to pose with Sir Turtle and post their pictures on social media with the hashtag #CaymanKindaWish.

Anyone interested in donating may drop off goods at the Department of Tourism on the third floor of the Government Administration Building through Dec. 11 during regular working hours.

  1. Non-perishable food (usually cans and boxes) collected for distribution to poor during the holiday season just doesn’t go well with me. Not all canned food is junk, but most is and full of preservatives, high calorie and nutritionally void. Maybe it is time to rethink how to provide fresh nutritious meals to those in need during holiday season? Churches probably know those people in need, may be inviting them to your Christmas table is a better way to express your gratitude for good fortune?
