KFC started the month of love by showcasing its caring spirit to a group of less fortunate individuals on the island, by providing over 70 meals to the Barbados Vagrants and Homeless Society and the Street Lamp Ministries which operates from Independence Square on Thursday’s starting at 8 p.m.
This is the second consecutive year in which KFC has lent its support to the programme and follows on from the franchise’s commitment to the global World Hunger Relief Campaign which it actively participates in on an annual basis.
The World Hunger Relief Campaign seeks to highlight global hunger issues and raise funds to assist the United Nations World Food Program and other hunger relief agencies globally but KFC also takes a keen interest in the hunger needs of those where it operates.
President of the Barbados Vagrants and Homeless Society, Kemar Saffrey, said KFC coming on board has added a much needed boost to the feeding programme:
“We are very honoured to be chosen once again by KFC as beneficiaries of their annual World Hunger Relief Campaign. We acknowledge their commitment to improving the lives of the less fortunate in Barbados and continue to encourage other corporate entities to follow in KFC’s footstep. We certainly look forward to working with KFC in the future to provide much appreciated treats to our members.”
Marketing Coordinator at KFC, Shekelia Barrow says the company was happy to partner with the two organisations once again:
“KFC remains committed to all efforts aimed at alleviating hunger in Barbados as part of our support of the World Hunger Relief Campaign. We are very sympathetic to those of us who are disadvantaged and unable to feed themselves adequately and therefore commend the work of the Barbados Homeless and Vagrants Society and look forward to a continued relationship with them.”
