The Hands for Hunger Story

Our vision is a transformed Bahamas where everyone has access to three nutritious and fortifying meals each day—no one goes hungry—and the quality of our environment is enhanced. Hands For Hunger was started by a group of Bahamian student leaders, led by Alanna Rodgers in early 2008. These students were committed to making a difference in the world. Our inspiration was founded on the critical realization that an incredible amount of unspoiled food is thrown away every single day by restaurants, hotels, cruise ships, markets, bakeries, and other local vendors. Meanwhile, countless people struggle to secure their next meal. We asked ourselves: how can we possibly expect issues of violence, crime, poor education, unemployment, and environmental ills to be eliminated, when we cannot first satisfy the most basic of human needs by guaranteeing that every citizen has food to eat?
