Today at CML we all are wearing very bright orange t-shirts, raising money and awareness in support of Feed Our Future: Cayman Islands.
As a part of the Child Month 2012 celebrations, the Department of Children and Family Services, in partnership with Feed our Future, have invited the community to participate in an island-wide “Dress Down Day”
According to the not for profit organisation, a large percentage of Cayman’s teachers regularly see children who come to school hungry because they aren’t getting enough to eat at home. The reality is that many teachers are spending their own money to purchase or provide meals for students in their classrooms.
Feed our Future is a not for profit association whose primary mission is to solve childhood hunger and to support intellectual nourishment in the Cayman Islands through the funding of nutritionally balanced low cost or free school meals to children in need.
Just $6.00 can provide school meals to a child for one day. $180 can provide school meals to a child for a month and $1,000 can provide a child in need school meals for a full school year.
Feed Our Future has a great website, which provides more information about how you can get involved: http://www.feedourfuturecayman.org/
And they’ve got a Facebook page too: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Feed-Our-Future-Cayman-Islands/154654517950186
